    If someone came unto you and said which of these two laptops you want for free, which one would you take.

    Macbook pro 13 inch mid 2012 (baseline non retina)
    OR
    Macbook Air 13 inch mid 2012 (baseline)

    I'm talking about the £1000 models.

    It depends on what I was doing with it. If I was just doing basic stuff when I was away from my desktop, I'd take the Air for its smaller profile and zippy solid state storage. If I wanted a laptop that was more of a workhorse machine to be my primary computer, I'd take the Pro for the more powerful CPU, more robust selection of I/O, significantly larger storage and the potential to upgrade the hard drive and RAM at a later date.

    I genuinely had the same choice, but luckily for me I have a desktop mac too.

    I went for the MacBook Air, it is so light and I love the idea that I can effortlessly carry it round with me, but ultimately it is what you need it for. MacBook Air is ridiculously quick. I had a MacBook Pro previously, and would choose the Air anyday!

    I can't really speak for the macbook air, but I have the macbook pro myself. And I absolutely love it. It has my highest recommendations.
