Well, I'm heading off to college next year, and I'm looking to got a laptop. I'll probably be doing some CAD work, a little photography, some programming, and, of course, some gaming. There seems to be endless debate on the forums about which laptop is best for which person, and I'll be the first to admit my thread is nowhere near unique. I would really love the sleekness, portability, and price (as compared to 15" ultimate MBP + SSD, AG) of the MBA, but I would like my computer to last me through grad school. It seems like the MBA could become a little dated in that amount of time. So, I ask you all: will the MacBook Air be relatively future-proof for 8 years, or will its performance start to suffer with new OSs, et c. that Apple throws at us? For that matter, will the MBP be future-proof (to a certain degree)? Let's hear what you have to say!
