iLife needs Snow Leopard


How's it going?

I have a question for you. I need a new laptop; I will using it primarily for business software needs. Would you suggest the new Macbook Air or the Macbook Pro line?


It really comes down to what you don’t need. If you don’t feel like you need a CD drive, you don’t need a tremendous amount of storage, you don’t need firewire, and massive speed is not an issue the the new air would be great. If you are ready to sort of lose the cables then the air would work. But that’s a tricky place to be. Yes, there’s DVD sharing if you have another mac laying around but your reliance on the cloud becomes about 80%. It’s where we’re all going but Apple may be pushing us a little quickly. For me, it would be a nice machine to hang around with but I need the ports in my field. Knowing your music background I would still say it’s not worth the money when compared to the i5 or i7 chips out there that give you much more power for your dollar. It’s not a choice I can make for you. Personally I’m a 17” macbook pro user and see no other laptop in my future for quite some time. I love the real-estate.

Once you get Office or whatever suite you go with on there then you may be very happy. Let me know what you decide. By the way, if you’re not using Dropbox, you should be. Use this link to create an account and you’ll get 250 megs more space. If you’re going to go to the air you’ll need it.
