I'd say go for 13'' Air since almost 50% lighter and way more portable. Unless you think you'll need the 15-17'' screens, disk drive and larger storage space, then Pro.

All their notebooks at once: http://www.apple.com/why-mac/compare/notebooks.html

@lady_b

i recently bought my macbook pro
but seriously was considering the new Airs

it came down to $$$
with the Pro i got $100 off the retail price for being in a University
with the air i would have only gotten $50.

i was considering the entry level 11'
but it only has 64GB Flash storage
that's just my music right there!
the entry level 13' Air with 128GB flash storage is $100 more than the entry level Pro!
so i went with the Pro instead. it's not as light as the Air
but still, very light. i needed that extra HDD space.
i'm very happy with my purchase. currently uploading every software i can find that i need. plus you also get $100 for the apple store, if i can't find a software i need to d/l, i will just end up buying it.

it all depends on your needs. the Airs are great if you can get one maxed out in the specs.


ciao

^ did you mean the regular white mac in your previous post? that's been discontinued..

I rarely use Safari (usually just to extract pictures from protected sites ), so I wouldn't know..

I use command + shift + 3 for taking pics of the entire screen and command + shift + 4 when I want to capture a specific part of the screen. Hope that helps, it appears some commands are different depending on the version you have.

A site called MacRumours have huge forums where you can post problems, I've had solutions from there before, they might be able to help you better.

^^just turn down the sound (or mute it) before you shut off your computer and it will be at the same volume level as it's turning on.

Thank you so much for the help guys.
THink I'll definitely go for the Macbook Air 13''.
I'm just hoping that it won't let me down,because I'll pretty much be using it 24/7.Since it will be my only computer.

I want one really badly and I'm goign to get one and then think 'why did it take me so long to buy it?' but until then I'm going to follow this thread with a lot of jealousy of the ones posting stuff like 'i just bought a MBair 11' couple of days ago and LOVING IT!!!' if you could see my evil face...

Anyways, isn't the Air thing a little too thin and too light? That's the impression I get when I'm at my local electrical retailer (again).
