But I use my PC for software development and have some heavy requirements such as a Virtual Box system that is about 100GB in size so that would blow away that small SSD.
If you are not doing much with your laptop, and just need a travel machine, get the Air.
I am looking to finally get my first Mac and was looking at 2 models at Best Buy: 1) Apple - MacBook Air® - 13.3" Display - 4GB Memory - 256GB Flash Storage for $1455, or 2) Apple® - MacBook Pro - 13.3" Display - 8GB Memory - 750GB Hard Drive for $1455.
Looking at the specs, the Pro has more features (like more ports and the DVD drive) but is also heavier and I know that the Air models have been getting great reviews for their lightweight and portability, along with having Flash drivers. But nonetheless, it's still a hard decision to make and I hope that you can all help guide me as to what's the better option for somebody like me who is always on the go, working from various locations, but needs a laptop with some good balls under it.
Any advice that you can all provide is greatly appreciated. Thanks for the time and suggestions!!!
