My 6-year-old MacBook Pro is near death. Motherboard has a crack, slightest jar could finish the job. All our other stuff is Apple, I'm too old, stupid and lazy to learn any other operating system, and I need a laptop, so I'm dithering between the Air and the Pro. Either way, a 13-inch screen is the most I can afford.
Can get the Air with either 128 or 256 GB flash storage, or the Pro with 500 or 750 GB hard drive.
Either can have 4 or 8 G memory.
My main activities besides internet, email are writing and photography. I'll have Lightroom or Photoshop, maybe a couple other photo editing programs.
I don't make videos or do music other than iTunes, or gaming or anything.
Any opinions on which way I should jump, Air or Pro, and how much storage and memory I need? I back up my photos on portable drive, and then clear a bunch off my laptop if I think I won't want immediate access.
