Okay, for the beginning, sorry for my english. This is not my primary language. So, here it is: Im going to university and Im planning buy a mac. I will be student of computer science(or something like this, dont know correct name of this, you know, programming and other stuff). This will by my first mac. I have iPhone and iPod, and I decided to buy a mac 50% because apple stuff is very decent, and 50% because im planning to work with objective C and iOS stuff. I know that macs are expensive. In US. In my country, macs prices are horrendous. Example? Cheapest Air in US: 999$. Here: 1500$!!! Upgrading RAM to 8 GB costs 150$. Okay, end of the offtopic. As I said, I will use mac to: -surf interwebz -watch movies -some basic games rarely -programming -Using windows(I don't know if i can have dual boot like in windows, if not, virtual machine) -writing For now, im rooting for Macbook Air 13'. 8 GB would be the best, but 13' with 8 GB ram costs 1870$ without student discount... Why 13? Because this will be my main machine which i will take with me to university once on a week. And in future, I hope, my workstation And the screen is quite big with being portable. 11' is cheaper, but I'm afraid that my eyes will blow out with this small screen And 11 is like a toy... Or maybe pro 13'? Price is the same like Air, but I can upgrade RAM in the future and replace/add SDD. Like this black frame outside the screen. And good processor. But worse mobility, bigger size and weight. So, what would you advise?
