Hi! I was just wondering if someone could give me advice on which laptop I should get for college this fall. I will be using it to:
go on the internet (fb/email)
take notes in class
create and make presentations
listen to and store music
stream videos (netflix/youtube)
edit photos and graphic design (probably will put creative suite on it)
run a business/non-profit
Portability is very important to me, and at this point, Im leaning towards the Air. I know that new MacBooks are coming out this summer, so I am probably waiting until then to make any purchases.
Price is not an issue since my scholarships will be covering it completely. Assume that if I get either, it will be fully loaded (ex. i7, highest RAM, processors, max size memory, etc.).
My intended major is (currently) economics with a pre-med track. I will be involved in a lot of different activities and will probably be using my laptop constantly.
I am sure I want a MacBook, so I guess my main question is, would the Air be capable of supporting all of the things I want to do? I know the Pro would be a safer choice since I will be doing quite a bit of design, but would an Air be sufficient? I feel that I might need to make that sacrifice since I plan on taking my laptop everywhere, but I just need someone to reaffirm my choice or convince me otherwise.
