    Let me start by saying that my girlfriend spilled water all over my 15 inch MBP from 2008, so it is time to get a new computer. I am a student (majoring in business), so replacing it with another 15 inch one isn't an option (too expensive). My roommate is being nice enough to let me borrow his old MBA, but this isn't a long-term solution.

    I have been looking at a couple of options right now. I am looking for a computer to run some pretty complicated excel and powerpoint files, and I know that the new airs can handle that no problem. Four gigs of ram is a necessity, but should I look at the new airs (11 or 13) or should I pick up a low end MBP that I can upgrade later with SSD and more ram (to get the snappy performance of airs)? Do you guys think that the new Pros will use flash like the air?

    Thanks,
    Nick

    If you can wait for the new MBPs to be released (should be soon) then evaluate your options and make a decision.
