There are many people wondering whether to buy the MacBook Air with Intel’s latest Haswell micro processor or to wait for a MacBook Pro to be release with the same processor. It is quite a good question really, the Haswell processor is much faster that the Ivy Bridge processors that the MacBook Pros currently use and the Haswell series also use much less power.
But life is never that simple. Deciding on which of the two laptops to buy comes down to a variety of factors, probably the most important being usage. The MacBook Air is a great machine for on the go business people and students. If most of your work is word processing or making spreadsheets, then the MacBook Air should be sufficient for your need. It is great for browsing, is really light and compact and can last for almost 12 hours on moderate usage.
The MacBook Pro is a much more serious laptop. It is powerful and is actually a better desktop replacement than a mobile computing solution. A MacBook Pro running the latest Haswell processor would be great for serious gamers and video editors.
