So, i am starting university in september and i am defiantly buying a macbook, but which one is my problem. so im going into the arts (major-drama minor-education) so there will be lots of notes, and powerpoints etc. i am not much into photo editing and if i do, its done on my iphone already. i do not what so ever play and video games. so from my research, the macbook air 13" is perfect for me? is my research correct? money is not a problem for me and i was looking at the MacBook Air 13-inch with 8GB of memory, 2.0GHz Intel Dual-Core Core i7, and 512GB flash storage which would cost $2,100. which is the price of a macbook pro. but i wont use any of the applications that the pro has to offer...

so please just let me know your thoughts on this.

thank you

MacBook

    I agree, the MBA configured as you say would be perfect for you.

     

    You can use any number of included apps for notes, and for "powerpoints" I recommend Keynote - $20 from the App Store.

     

    I find Keynote much easier to use than MS PowerPoint.

    or you could spend half the money and buy a nice sony vaio or dell notebook... just an idea, since you are a  college student and you most likely dont have 2000 bucks to fork over for a machine you can pay less than half that for.

    ... and spend the other half when that piece of junk Dell breaks in a year.

     

    The total cost of ownership of a Windows PC is far greater than a Mac.
