I had a Macbook Pro 15" late 2009 model and miss it. It was my first MAC that I I ever owned. I sold it after 6 months for a Dell XPS which I am not very happy with due to my job making me have a laptop for work. Well I can bootcamp the new one so I am not too worried about that, but if they have a problem, they can buy me a work laptop as I am not going to put up with them telling me to get one for me to use for them anymore. I do not really do any gaming and like to browse the web and read. I also like to get emails, edit pictures since I have a SLR. The Macbook Pro I had was great. Did all that. I just didn't like it's weight as much as I had hoped. The AIR however might satisfy me. My budget is around $2200 max. I just can't seem to make up my mind between the two again. Now that the AIR has more power, etc it's a great choice. But my worry is, 2-3 years down the road, it may need more memory and 4gb is all it has and is limited too. What are your thoughts on this? I like the new resolutions on both systems. So that is a key player as well. I have a Desktop machine PC at home that is my gaming rig with a Quad Core Processor, RAID5 and so on. It is my powerhouse that is 3 years old but going strong. So this will be my alternate on the go machine mostly. Eventually I might replace this home pc with a IMAC or something, but not till it dies!
