Hi! So I've had my MacBook Pro (2.4 GHz i5, 8 GB RAM, 500 GB HDD) for almost 3 years now and apart from a partially defective CD drive that I don't use anyway it still works perfectly. Now, as a final year university student, I find myself in the library more and more often, and carrying around all my stuff (MBP, charger, stationary, notebooks, water, etc.) is starting to become a strain. Seeing how easily others come and go with their MBAs, I am now toying with the idea of getting a 13" MacBook Air, which would enhance my portability immensely. In particular, I would get the high-end one with the i7 2.0 GHz CPU and 8 GB of RAM. Apart from the usual word-processing and web-browsing, I use Spotify a lot, watch quite a few TV Shows on Netflix and occasionally use Photoshop CS5 as well as Parallels with Office 2010. I was initially drawn to the MBP Retina and although it seems amazing, I feel like its specs and the retina display would make it a waste of money and resources, given my relatively light usage. Also, in terms of portability I feel like the improvement would only be marginal. However, there are two factors that are potentially off-putting: 1.) The expected updates in a couple of months time (?) with the rumored facelift. Then again, rumors may not be true and we'll just be seeing a "normal" line and a retina line of which only the latter would receive the facelift, so I would just lose out on specs I don't really need that much. 2.) The fact that my portability requirements are likely to drop immensely as I start my job after university in the summer. I'll most likely be issued a laptop, in which case my personal machine would kind of act as a desktop, which really isn't the point of a MBA, so a MBP or even an iMac would do. Then again I could simply attach the MBA to an external screen, though I'm not sure how great performance would be. In any case, if I go through with it, I was thinking I could reassess the situation there and then, still sell my MBA for most of the purchasing money and get a machine that is more suited to my needs at that point. In case this changes anything, I've been offered 600-700 GBP for my MBP (purchased for about 1,650 GBP three years ago). Thoughts?
