i'm kinda in a serious dilemma here.
When the MBA first came out, i decided to get the 13 inch model with i5, 8gb ram and 256 ssd.
But that's really expensive, especially for a student like me.
So im either going to upgrade the ram or the ssd capacity, but i honestly have to idea what to upgrade. I can get the base model too, of course.
Anyways, this is what i do...
-Write essays, not a lot though.
-watch movies, but i never store movies, cuz the moment im done watching them i delete them so that won't really interfere with my storage.
-watch news, and when i do i open about 15 tabs at once, but using my laptop with 6gb of ram it works perfectly, and when i check with task manager it only uses like 1.7 gb of ram....
-i DONT play games on a MBA
-I am going to install windows via bootcamp.---probably divide the partition like 3:7 or 4:6.
-i am going to install microsoft word, itunes, etorrent, and all those basic stuff.
Anyways, what do you think? Should i get a 4gb ram with a 256gb ssd? Or 8gb ram with 128gb ssd? Or maybe the base model?
Thanks in advance! I really hope you guys can write all your opinions down so i can finally decided what to buy!
OS X takes less than 10 GB, so you should have about 120 GB of storage to save files and apps
