The new school year is almost there for me and I'm thinking of buying a new macbook. My current one (2008 macbook) is still ok for daily use, but I still prefer to upgrade for the new year. So for my needs: -surfing/video streaming -some Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign -programming -I'm having a CG class this year, so I'll have to do some 3d programming too! Do you think an MBA will be sufficient for my needs, especially last point? I'm kinda worried about the integrated graphics, but neither the MBA nor 13" MBP have dedicated graphics, do you think that will be enough? I'm kinda leaning towards the Air as some ppl say the MPB is dead, the Air has SSD + better screen + portable + battery. I have no use for the CD/DVD and I can live without the ethernet port too. But the Pro is upgradable... (although I'm not really planning to, but the option just seems nice) And continuing with the MBA, do you think a base model with 8gb of RAM would be ok? Is there a big of a difference between i5 and i7 or can I live without the i7 model? I'm also going to use it for at least 2-3 years to come... Thanks!
