i dont know which macbook to choose...

i am a researcher, who always travels to present in international conferences and i badly need a good notebook. i've been searching for the one that suits me (work like microsoft office programs, minimal graphics, heavy internet usage), which is sleek, slim, lightweight and most importantly, fast. during my travels, definitely i listen to mp3s and watch movies on the plane (or while waiting at the airport). i play minimal games on my previous laptop (mainly soccer and RPGs). i have no idea which to choose: macbook air or macbook pro or just a normal laptop.

    Because you will be traveling a lot, you should definitely go with the higher end MacBook Air 13 inch with 256GB or more of flash storage. I know, it is costly but in the long run it will be worth it since you cannot upgrade later. You will appreciate its fast start up time, extremely light weight, and beautiful thin tapered design. It is perfect for everyday use like streaming movies, word processing, and surfing the net. The new HD webcam is great for video conferencing. For very light gaming, the Air can perform OK. Good luck and enjoy your Macintosh!
