    • 256GB SSD storage
    • Gigabit Ethernet (10/100/1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet using RJ-45 connector)

    MacBook Air ($1199)
    • 1.6GHz dual‑core 8th‑generation Intel Core i5 processor, Turbo Boost up to 3.6GHz

    Mini, hands down. It’s a little hoss or Mimi macpro imo. You’ll be able to upgrade the ram yourself to 32gb or 64gb for heaps cheaper than what Apple charges.

    this is the mini forum so most answers should be mini. but even so, there's no way the air is better unless you really need the portability.
