Macbook Air or Pro

by DaltMyas / July 15, 2013 4:51 PM PDT

I will be buying a Mac laptop for college but I can't decide what I should do. I am going to be a chemical engineer and I heard some of the computer programs for the program can be demanding. The new Airs have their perks and I'd clearly get it with an i7 processor and 8GB ram but should I hold out for the new Pro? I don't know the rumored specs for the new pros OR when they are suppose to be released. If anyone could fill me in, that would be great.

The subject of when the next model will arrive is well done to the point of you might get odd replies but wait if you can.

When is the Macbook Pro (2013) suppose to be released? and does anyone have rumored specs for the new 2013 model?

Also I heard the SSD on the Airs don't last nearly as long, is that true?

Sounds like the same question to me.

Just change the year to what you want and you see the same question. The answer has yet to change so my thought here is the same answers work as before.
