    In OP's situation, absolutely. I understand the software benefits but in the real world they're for the minority of users. It looks like OP wants to buy a mac because its apple smh...

    I have the 13 inch MacBook Air and it's a fantastic piece of kit. I'd highly recommend it.

    Hey! I'm looking to buy a new laptop for university, as my 13" mid-2012 MacBook Pro just isn't cutting it anymore! It's much too heavy and slow.

    Right now I'm stuck between the new Macbook and the 13" MacBook Air.

    I will only really be using it to browse the web, write essays and watch Netflix. I also don't need much storage space as I store everything online, and will only be using it around 6 hours a day.

    I'm partial to the MacBook (I love the gold!), but am still hesitant.
    I'd love to hear from people who have used one or both of the laptops!
    I'f recommend the air tbh, it's the one i've got and its much lighter, and less of a burden on your back/shoulders when on your feet.
