Currently have a pro, which I've had since early 2011 but want to upgrade as the current one is slow, freezes all the time and the screen has heaps of marks on it, so I think it's had its day.
I'm wavering towards a air as they're a lot lighter and take a bit more wear and tear but I still feel like I should get a pro. Cheers!
The Air and Retina Pro have negligible weight difference with the new Pros being a lot slimmer and lighter than their predecessors. Main difference between the two lines now is the retina display and the better processor, up to you whether you want to pay the premium for these features.
i bought the Air this year for uni.
lightweight and easy to carry around
Good for writing essays
New yosemite X update resulted in wifi problems, had no problems the first month with maverick.
Can't play games (may be a good thing lol)
easy to leave marks on the screen and keyboard as you mentioned.
Overall great laptop if you need it for general internet browsing and doing uni work or whatever.
Oh and mine is the early 2014 13 inch
Pro purely for the disc drive imo.
Im thinking of getting an MacBook. Now the only problem is that I can't decide which one to go for MacBook Air or MacBook Pro? Which is one is better?
