Hello guys, So, I'd like to buy my very first macbook, but I am having a real difficulty in deciding which model to get. Firstly, let me tell a few things about my self and what the purpose of the mac will be. - I will soon be a grad student in Computer Science - I will use the macbook for programming (probably install windows with boot camp) - I will do some application development with xcode - Some movies and light/casual gaming and of course web surfing and so on The options that I am looking at are: - 13'' MacBook Air, 2012 base model with 8GB RAM - 13'' MacBook Pro, 2012 base model with 8GB RAM - 15'' MacBook Pro, late 2011, base model (possibly with 8GB RAM) - this is the more expensive option, not sure if I need it, plus it is not so portable Which option do you think is best for me? I like the fact that the Pro has a larger hdd and that I can switch the hdd to an SSD if I wanted. I don't like that it has a relatively small screen resolution. I would also prefer the 13'' form factor since is is easier to carry around and since it is cheaper than the 15'' I could buy a nice external monitor.
