    Hi!!!!

    I have a mid-2009 MBP with a 2.2 GHz C2D 2 GB RAM 160 GB HDD and Im thinking about selling it to get a MBA 2010 because its cheaper that the 2011

    is this a performance boost or not

    By the way i already have an iMac 27" as my main computer so i don't use my MBP much except for traveling

    Does the MBA look better than the MBP??

    Thanks for replies

    Probably not, since you're asking. Facebook and iTunes don't take much power.

    Subjective. Decide for yourself.

    I'd recommend sticking with your MacBook Pro because of a few things:
    • The memory and hard disk are user servicible, so you can upgrade them down the road if you wish to add more life to your MacBook Pro; you can not do this with a MacBook Air.
    • Your MacBook Pro has a backlit keyboard which can be convenient for typing in the dark; the MacBook Air does not have this (in the 2010 model).
    • You have a larger array of connectivity options on the MacBook Pro in comparison to the MacBook Air.
    Just my two cents, hope that helps. :)
