    59 words, 272 characters (excl spaces).

    wiki MacBook Pro
    wiki MacBook Air
    each 3 words and 14 characters respectively, 6 words and 28 characters total.

    Just saying, you'll find a fantastic write-up of the specs (including physical dimensions) on wikipedia. :)

    I guess I should have been clearer in my question. Has anyone who has owned both devices be able to advise if there was a real or negligible difference in size and weight and everyday use?

    I very briefly owned the Air before changing to a Pro.

    I thought that the size/weight difference was immaterial, but there are plenty here who will tell you that a 1oz difference is the difference between life and death. If you have serious physical capability issues then that certainly might be a factor, or if it's going to sit in your backpack and on your back for 8 hours a day. But for a healthy adult with occasional transportation it's totally irrelevant IMO.

    There are also those will will tell you that the Air is unusable because the display causes "eye strain".

    I wouldn't give that much credence either, unless you actually do have eye issues.

    Size/weight is probably one of the last considerations I would make between the devices.


    Regardless, if you can wait a few weeks I would see if something is announced at the end of October for a new 13".
