    If those are the specs you need, just get a Macbook Air instead of a Pro. If you're not doing video editing, you're wasting your money.

    Source: I run a six-figure a year business off a Macbook Air.

    Surprised I got here before the "Don't get a Mac" crew started chortling each others' balls. They must all be busy... chortling each others' balls.

    You can run a six figure business off any good pc, no matter the operating system(as long as its a modern OS).

    Moved to a Macbook pro last year as my main computer tool... November I believe.

    Got the 13 inch model as it is easier to use while sitting outside on the deck and "work".

    Every now and then I'll use my Dell but those times are getting more and more rare.

    depends on the specs you need for your business, if mac book pro will help you to be more productive and multitasking then go for it, especially if you are into coding, development, video editing

    2.Backlinking (Web 2.0 creations, banner exchange )
    3.Content creation
    4. Scrapebox
    5:Domain Hunting
    7. Excel (In my current desktop , excel takes a lot of time to open that is very frustrating for me , is there any obvious reason )


    etc
