Hi, I'm new to this forum and want the recommendations of those who went through the process of choosing their MacBook Air here. I'm heading to college in a month, and I want to get a the new MBA. Question is: Is the 13" or 11" better overall? I personally am heading more towards the 13" because: It is the "perfect" size in terms of portability and a good, reasonable-sized screen Has a better battery life Has a slightly better resolution Having said that, the cheaper price of the MBA 11" and it's increased portability is what makes me consider it. Although I don't like that it has less battery life. What do you guys think? I'll be using it for regular browsing, university assignments, downloading a few movies here and there, watching YouTube videos, and those regular tasks we all do. I would also like to ask if 128GB SSD is enough? I'm thinking of getting the base model and then buying an HDD for back-up and in case the 100GB isn't enough. Is that a better option than upgrading the SSD? Because it's quite expensive to get the 256GB tbh. And is 4GB RAM enough? If I get the 11" I can afford upgrading to either 256GB or 8GB RAM, but I don't think I can afford those upgrades if I get the 13". So which combination is a better deal? 11" with upgrades or a 13" without and why? Thanks in advance.
