I had grand plans to upgrade my ageing 2011 MacBook Air 11.6" 1.6GHz i5 4GB 128GB for the most recent 11.6" 8GB model from the refurb store, but it seems Apple's ill-judged decision to kill the MBA has put an end to that. I really don't like the route the new Apple laptops are going with regards to reducing port numbers, removing legacy ports, and killing MagSafe. With the choices left, I'm considering either a brand new MacBook Air 13.3" 2.2GHz dual-core i7 8GB 128GB for £1,079, or a refurb'd 2015 MacBook Pro 13.3" Retina 2.7GHz dual-core Intel i5 8GB 128GB for £1,059. Form factor and portability has always been a big deal for me, which is why my 2011 11" MBA gets a lot more use than my 2010 13" MBP which I find too big heavy and cumbersome by comparison. However I appreciate that the MBP form factor has become sleeker over the years, and since I no longer have a new 11" MBA option available to me, the difference in footprint between the 13" MBA and last year's 13" MBP is probably minimal. I wouldn't consider myself a CPU-intensive user, however my 2011 MBA has always struggled a bit with my habit of having too many Safari tabs opened at the same time. It's always handled my other demands ok (e.g. a bit of audio and video processing), but I tend to leave anything strenuous to my 2008 Mac Pro which gets the job done much faster with its 8 cores! I hold onto my computers for a reasonably long time, so whichever laptop I buy still needs to be able to keep up the pace in 3 years time. I'd be grateful for your thoughts on the two models I propose and if you think there's any options I've missed? Many thanks.
