I recently received a macbok pro as a present. I was thinking about the MacBook Air actually for 2 days or so after using the MacBook Pro. I was going to exchange for MacBook Air instead. But, today I took my gift into the store, Talked to the Genius Bar about how this is my first MacBook computer and told them about my dilemma: Wavering between the MacBook Air 13"/ MacBook Pro 13". They went over with me each machine's pros/cons. I even tried out the MacBook Air's. Conclusion is, I am keeping my MacBook Pro. Oh, in case you don't know. My MacBook Pro is the baseline model.
