    If you are going to buy a Mac I would buy the pro. I dont think the air is all that great. The pro is small enough in my opinion and it is certainly a lot more durable. Yes, you will see a significant drop in performance with the air.

    I would buy the MacBook Pro. I would also wait a month or 2 as I have a feeling the MacBook lineup is going to be replaced.

    yeah i would go with the MacBook Pro or the iMac. As for the MacBook Air the specs on it are lower than the MacBook. I use a 15in MacBook Pro and it great. The iMac is also a great deal too. I just depends on if you need portability.

    yet its not slow just slower and more expensive then there other 2 laptops

    EDIT: its more then the MacBook and just under the MacBook Pro. For the price you can get a custom MacBook thats really nice or for a little more get the MacBook Pro

    When we say the air is slow we are comparing it to other apple products. The air is much faster than a Dell Inspireon, for example!
