hello about to buy apple laptop confused between these two which one is better ??
I read a new apple is coming out soon. Gonna hold out for that then make the change to apple.
good question, I am thinking about a mac pro 13` myself
I would wait until WWDC for the new pro. Check out the specs, it'll be like a badass Air
really depends on what you are using it for
i wanted to buy an apple to install windows on it, then i decided to buy a dell XPS13 because it is a macbook air with windows
I'd wait as well, maybe they will make something better for the price. There is a lot to be desired in the 'high priced' macs, from display (check its ability to differentiate shades of gray), to lower processing power. I'm not a hater. I own both PC and Mac. Mac is slipping though tbh. Too much on advertising and not enough on actual product. Hopefully they take this to heart and produce something really 'different' as they did in the past.
when new one is coming ?
I like my AIR, its like walking around with a magazine. Light/Thin
If you need high end performance the Pro would be the better choice tho.
I would wait to see what Apple puts out in a couple of months. Personally, I would go with the Air. I purchased the Air because I didn't really need the CD/DVD drive and I love the portability.
If you need portability go with the Air, if you need performance go with the Pro
Still better to wait for the new release.
I currently have a 15" Macbook Pro and I'll be waiting the 3 months for the Air.
If you must buy it now, it all depends on what you need. If you're just doing SEO stuff that requires an browser then the air is the way to go. The air also has no problems whatsoever running Parallels (virtualization software for your SEO tools, most of them are windows only). So if you're just doing that most of the time and you like portability, the air is the way to go.
If it will be just sitting on your desk or bed I'd either recommend getting a 13" pro if price is an issue and getting a monitor and one of these http://twelvesouth.com/products/bookarc/ or just getting a 15" Macbook Pro.
In either case, if you can, wait. In about 3 months there should be a whole new line of both Air and Pros.
Waiting is the best stuff ! macbook pro is gonna be more thin.... much better... with the cd drive ...being completely thin ! if you still plan to buy one is think the macbook pro 13.3 is better option on all fronts, you tend to use he cd drive , even if not... it is of ease or utility. Air is Just like a netbook variant.... macbook pro seems to meet all the stuff.... if use a macbook pro 15" early 2011.... so that what my view on it !
Why would you bother with waiting? They have an incremental upgrade every 6 months and refresh every year, at this rate you'll be waiting forever. Get the Air. MacBooks in general have a great resale value so you can always sell it for probably around 60 - 80% of the price you paid for it.
a review in youtube will make things easier for you,although don't buy anything b4 the 2012 version comes out. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QhUX1muAhc0&feature=related
Macbook. No CD drive is a killer.
I have had both and the Air win hands down, in both performance and portability. My macbookpro ran slow and clunky compared to the air I have now, because of its solid state drive. Only downsides are not as much HD space and no CD drive. Both arent major issues though. Well worth the extra speed and lightness.
dell well with the price of their notebooks you can get a really good laptop lol ...
Get a Macbook Pro, the hardware is just way better. Macbook Pro's are pretty light anyway. The airs are a waste of money IMO.
Pro's n cons all round, personally I've got a Macbook Pro 15" and I cream my pants every time she boots up :fest30:
all the way Macbook pro 15.
btw... i read the steve jobs biography recently and this guy was a freaking genius, that is proven by his company's products of course!
