Okay so a quick preamble for years I had nightmares with laptops but were dependent on them. My first favourite was a netbook, a Dell Mini 9. I eventually ditched that for what became the ultimate memorable laptop, the (Late-2010) Air 11. Alas after a blizzard not only was my dag drenched but the laptop was. everything was fine, except the keyboard. I resorted to a maxed out MBP 13 and have stuck with it for nearly 4 years. The weight of it is killing me. So here's my situation. I don't need huge expanses of GB. I like light, fast, and never-ending battery life. My life includes travel, 3-4 days I'm moving around my city from early as 6:30am till 3pm. So I really just need a battery to run from around 7ish till 4ish. My portable laptop will be my primary use, when I'm at home I am much more likely to open up pixelmator or Paintbrush. But the reality is that I'm doing 85% web browsing from Wiki to YT. the other 10% is heavy open office, and the rest is essentially Pixelmator. I do do photography and use compact flash and SDHC cards so I guess an SD card slot is a benefit but not essential. My bag has a bit of all-sorts which makes it sadly weigh around 7kg (15.4lbs) all up. Sadly most of it is health stuff. Now my battery on my MBP is clocking in below 4:30H I am finding it difficult not to pack the charger. I bought the MBP when it promised 7H battery life, and I was okay lugging around this monolith for the life. Now it's going to be a more stay at home, casted off to family member situation. I might be able to use it from time-to-time. However I prefer to stick to one laptop for everything. I have gotten use to the roomy 13" screen and my mind is still trying to think whether or not going to the 11.6". The reason why I didn't pick another Air was down to the fact it had only a 5 hour battery. Now it has a 9 hour. I am racking my mind over the real estate on the screen. Logically the Air 13 makes sense, but I sometimes feel like my laptop atm is sometimes a little too big at times. My MBP by the was has a 113 dpi and is 1280x800. Ideally I would place screen quality over real estate. but really weight, portability, and battery life are the fundamentals. I will no doubt be "future proofing" and maxxing it out though not sure about the processor... So I'd appreciate any feedback or people's experience on an Air 11. Thanks in Advance!
