Mac Air or Pro

I am a theatre tech and design major which requires many large programs such as Vector Works, CAD, Google Sketch up, as well as a few digital lighting software. My Hp laptop is too old to handle all these programs and thus need to upgrade. I have been informed that Mac's are better for the "designer" type of person.

First I would like to know if the above statement is true and why, and second if I do decide to switch to Mac should I get an Air or a Pro and why,

  • Considering what you're doing... go Pro. The air is much more portable, but not as powerful. You need power and that retina screen to do what you're doing effectively and efficiently.
