    Hello all,

    I was wondering if I could have some advice. I bought a Macbook Air a few years back and I love it. I only use it for uni and occasional browsing so nothing too heavy.

    I decided to buy a Microsoft Surface Pro 4 (with keyboard) and that so far seems really nice. The pen feature is very handy....

    I am debating whether to sell my mac or not? Surely I won't need both will I?

    Cheers

    You already own both, you may as well hold onto the Mac for a few weeks while using the surface as your primary machine and see how often a "I wish I had my Mac to do this" situations crop up. You can then weigh up the value of having a Mac around against the value you can flog the Mac for.

    Agreed. It also gives you time to comb through all your files and save anything you want (assuming it's not all backed up on iCloud).
