Digital Art & Design Major: Macbook Air 13" vs. Macbook Pro 13"

Hi everyone!
As the title says, I'm a digital art & design major and I'm doing lots of graphics design. I'm a junior in college and I'm still using my Dell Inspiron from when I was a freshman in high school... that thing is a couple of pounds and I hardly do any editing on it since it's not the best for that, or anything... haha. I've had it re-formated a couple of times and it's running on Window's 7 now but I think it's about time for an upgrade. I'm looking into purchasing either the Macbook Air 13" or the Macbook Pro 13" and I'm honestly an Apple product newbie... I've never owned any Apple products till about 2 months ago when I got an iPod Touch. Please let me know which I should get and what you recommend! Thank you!

  • Best Answer:

    Go with Mac Book Pro. I have been a marketing executive for 23 years and dealt with many ad agencies and they all have used Mac, the best machines ever built for design and creative productions. The new Mac Book Pro Retina have the best screen resolution for any laptop in the market. However, if you really think you will need the optic drive, then you will need to consider the Mac Book Pro.

    Good luck,
