Hi all, first time posting on this forum, I have an old 2013 MBA that just recently started malfunctioning and stopped working altogether (my fault I let my daughter use it and she accidentally spilled soda over it). That said, I'm in the market for a brand new laptop and I'm considering the 2018 256gb SSD MBA, and the recently updated 2019 MBP with also a 256gb SSD. What is stopping me from buying the new MBA is that I've heard different opinions regarding it's performance. I mainly use my laptop for work related stuff like text editing (Word and Excel), e-mails, watching online courses and basic media consumption. I will never use it for gaming or heavier tasks since I got a desktop just for that. My old MBA really struggled with the Office package and that really bugged me. A friend of mine said the new MBA is considerably more powerful than my old one and that it will be more than enough for that specific need, but my brother (who is quite an enthusiast with computers) said it will operate the office package quite slowly, since I always have a couple of word documents and excel spreadsheets opened at the same time and because the MBA uses a dual core processor, while the MBP uses a quad core one. Will the new MBA have any issues with multiple office and media (spotify, safari/firefox) applications opened at the same time or should I go for the $400 more expensive 13' MBP with touch bar? Thanks in advance!
