My 17" MacBook Pro has pretty much always been sitting on my desk due to its size. I'm about to go on a couple of trips, for almost two months, and it would be great to have a smaller notebook to carry around. You can see the specs of my MBP in my sig. What kind of performance difference would there be between what I have and a 13" MacBook Air with the new 1.7ghz i7 and 8gb of memory? Will it be viable for music production (Ableton) and DJing with Traktor Pro? Does it multitask well? One thing I'll never be able to get over is its lower resolution, but I think its size makes up for it. At home, I can connect it to my external monitor. I have a week before I leave for my trip. Any and all opinions would be very much appreciated! Mods, if this is better suited in the MacBook Air forum, please move it there.
