Apple's Website Prices
MBP 13: $1,199
MBP 15: $1,799
MBA 11: $999-$1,199
MBA 13: $1,299-$1,599
Me: For a pure school laptop I'd go for the MBA 13. Screen size and resolution are is just right, plus you get the awesome thin/light form factor and the speed of the SSD.
MBP 13 or 15 only if you want the extra power. If money isn't an issue and you really really need the extra 2 inches of real estate, than MBP 15.
Yeah i should have specified. I am considering the 13" models for both MBA and MBP. The thing I am concerned about with MBA is the the 128GB drive. too small?
Also does not have an optical drive matter in law school?
Contact your school. Not having an optical drive is always a hassle, though.
Why? What do you need them for in law school? Besides personal stuff like watching movies?
Basically I am debating the light weight of the MBA vs the functionality of the MBP.
It's not a dead format, and test-taking software can change within 3 years to require an optical disk. No guarantees either way, though.
