First, I'm new to posting here, though I've lurked a bit over the past few months. Since my question involves a MBA, a MBP and the new alum MB, I wasn't sure which was the appropriate forum, but I settled on this one because there are already several threads about the disappointing display. Anyway, I've had a MBA for 4-5 months and love it. However, when I got the MBA I also had a desktop pc, which has since bit the dust. I much prefer the Mac and so have not repaired the pc (actually I think my husband has already scavenged the parts). I've done pretty well with the MBA as my only computer, but not surprisingly I've found myself needing a little more horsepower and storage space. My primary needs are photo editing, some word processing and of course web browsing. Obviously the first one is the problem with the MBA. I've been pleasantly surprised at how well some of my software runs on it, but I don't enjoy having to store almost all my photos on an external drive. I can't justify spending big bucks on anything right now, but when the new alum MB came out I figured I could improve the situation a bit for not much money. But the crummy display has turned out to be a deal breaker for me. I can't believe how it looks compared with the MBA. So, now I'm trying to decide whether to stick with the MBA and get some network attached storage (which I'm concerned will be too slow) or get a last generation 15" MBP (which means sacrificing the size and weight of the MBA). Any suggestions? Is there something I haven't considered? Thanks!
