You know that feeling when you have money to spend and you don't
quite know what to spend it on?
Apple has some big announcements tomorrow.
I was planning on buying an iPad Air to replace my iPad 3.
I suspect a new 13" retina Macbook Air is going to be announced.
Now, I already own a retina 15" Macbook Pro. I downsized from a 17" almost
2 years ago.
I was concerned about losing the real estate, from 17" to 15". But, what
I gained was more portability. I was now carrying around a lighter laptop.
And, really, no significant difference between the two sizes.
Now I am looking to give up my 15" and go with a 13" Macbook Air.
The primary reason, of course, is portability. A 13" Macbook Air would be
extremely light. It could be carried in one hand, I suspect.
The only thing I fear is losing 2 more inches of real estate.
Anyone who has gone from a 17" or 15" Macbook Pro to one of the
smaller AIR laptops wish to comment on how they feel about losing screen
real estate?Also, I assume that the Macbook Air models are just as powerful as their
Macbook Pro counterparts?
When all is said and done, I suspect that since the current 13" Macbook Air
(maxed out) is about $1,700 that the rumored new model should be about
the same price if not a bit lower. Not bad, considering.
...and let's hope a new iWatch is not announced so it doesn't further confuse
