so its either an air or the macbook. now as far as processor power the base model macbook says 1.1ghz turbo boost to 2.4ghz for 1299 i found a macbook air 13 inch with 2.2 ghz for 1250 the 50$ difference in price doesn't bother me so I'm asking people that understand the specs here what to do. all i will be doing primarily is surfing the web(usual youtube stuff) and possibly be recording a podcast so what would my best bet be?? is retina really worth it or is the air good enough? does that turbo boost up to 2.4 mean anything or is 2.2 better?? i have a 13 inch macbook pro now(mid 2010) that i will keep as the home base computer, going to upgrade the ram and the new one will be for me for more portability and work related stuff (emails, spreadsheets) and the possible podcast i might be starting.
