Hi. I am looking to replace my eee pc netbook with something that will be able to deliver better performance, and I am wondering if the MBA could manage. Here is what I do: 1) PDF creation, editing, searching, ocr, optimizing, etc. with Adobe Acrobat Pro. 2) word processing (relatively large files with some images) 3) Internet 4) emails *often all at once Here is the problem: I know it doesn't sound like much. It's not like gaming or anything, but my netbook takes 1hr + to combine about 300 images/pdf and ocr them. Meanwhile, the rest of my tasks slow to a painful crawl. I can be typing, switch to the Internet to check a database, and it takes a second or two for a page to come up. Over the course of the day it gets more and more frustrating. Here is what I am thinking: I would love to have something portable AND powerful. I was originally excited about the sandy bridge, and the chance to get a MBP 13" or 15" that would be able to whip through these tasks. A few people in that forum, though, have suggested that the MBA would be plenty of power. I find that difficult to believe. However, if the difference is negligible for what I am doing (in other words, I wouldn't even notice anyhow), and I could get an 11" MBA, that would be ideal. What do you think?
