    Hey all.

    Like many others, I am about to choose between the most powered up MBA and the most powered up MBP (13").

    I am really turned on by the smoothnes, stilth and weight of the MBA, but I am worried the processor won't be enough to deal with Ableton Live - Both recording but mostly for Live performance using more than one plug-in, sample-shooting and backtrack. Anyone with any experience in that area?

    im not sure about the mba but i got the 2011 13'' mbp. with 8gb of ram and ableton runs like wow! its crazy fast. i been using ableton for many years and never seen how fast it run on my mbp. if your primary reason to buy the laptop is for music go for mbp if not im sure mba could handle ableton but not at amazing speeds.
