Ok, I am going to purchase my first mac in a couple of days. I am mainly looking for Macbook air 2012 with 8gb ram and 128 gb ssd and it will cost me $1269 after student discount. The second model I am looking for is Macbook pro 15 base model (4gigs ram, 500gb hdd and nvidia gt 650m 550 mb) (refurb) and that will cost me $1549. I am mainly attracted to air because of its portability but at the same time I am wondering that I can get a much powerful computer for $250 more. I mainly use computer for browsing, office and movies. Occasionally I do record some music (guitar only, just for fun) and do some photo editing (again its just a hobby). Sometimes I take my computer to college but mostly I carry my IPad. What should be a better buy?
