Mac Setups: Transitioning from MacBook Pro to MacBook Air

Apr 30, 2011 - 3 Comments

MacBook Pros and MacBook Airs

If you dream of Mac laptops you’ll like this one. From the looks of things, there’s a MacBook Pro 15″, MacBook Air 13″, MacBook Pro 13″, MacBook Air 11″, and a mystery Mac behind the the top two (maybe another MacBook Air 13?). All these Macs belong to Garrett Murray of ManiacalRage. If you’re wondering why there are so many Macs in the picture, it’s because he’s transitioning his household from the heavier MacBook Pro’s to ultraportable MacBook Air’s.

The Macbook Air is a great machine so I’m not surprised that people are moving from heavier models to the ultraportable lineup. I just wish the Air had a Core i5, 8GB of RAM, a black screen bezel, and a glowing keyboard, but that’s me being picky.

    nah… I guess it all depends on your needs… Until time comes when Air’s RAM and SSD are upgradeable, I guess I won’t go that way…

    i5 CPU… 8GB RAM… SandForce controlled SSD (not just any SSD)… and of course, a dedicated GPU.

    If the 3rd generation MBA’s due this summer DO have the Core i5, and even possibly an i7 as I have read rumored, and at least 4GB of memory, (of course 8 is better) then I will be going this route too. I don’t need to carry around a DVD burner with me. The fact that every thing is hard coded to silicon from start and can not do any thing about the upgrading RAM and storage, better get the properly spec’d machine from the outset. It’s why I held off on 2nd generation Macbook Airs. 2GB of RAM? A joke! and, to regress back to Core2Duo in the interest of progress? Another joke. Let’s hope that Gen3 of MBA gets it right. Then, we can all do away with S.J.’s ‘trucks’, and move on to automobiles. :-)

    Because some people need better specifications then the macbook air can deliver. And I use a disc driver every day so the air is not for me.
