Hello, I had an ibook a few years ago and loved it but due to the cost of getting a Macbook or Pro I had to get a PC at the time. Well I'm in a better place now and want to look at getting a mac again. I have been really excited about the new MBA. Now I'm going back and forth with the MBA 11.6 (64gb, 4gb) and the MBP 13 (base). I use the computer mostly for surfing, music and word processing. I'm not a designer or do any video editing or processor hungry things. I dont use an optical drive but maybe once or twice a year so it is not of much concern. I have 3TB of external HD space so the internal HD is a moot point also. I like the weight/heat savings of the MBA as its normally on my lap while watching TV. Only thing about the MBP that I love over the MBA is the backlit keyboard which is very handy at night. I'm trying to get the best bang for the buck with my purchase. I can get the MBP for $1,127 and the MBA for $1,033 with my employers discount. Which is a better buy for me?
