    Default MacBook Air or pro for a college student?

    I am not super techy, but I like the mac computers because they are so easy to operate. I'm just not sure which to get.

    Essentially I will be getting it for college, which means lots of documents and school related stuff.
    Other than that, I have a lot of photos, and like to surf the web! I watch Netflix and YouTube on occasion as well.

    Let me know your thoughts.

    The Mac Book Air in my opinion. Best battery life and very light.

    Both should do the job for you. The MacBook Pro will give you more space at a cheaper price but the MacBook Air will be more portable for you

    MBA will do the job just fine, I recently picked one up although it was the 4GB one to more or less replace my iPad but I'm finding that I'm using it more then my primary laptop at home. It's so much lighter and I use it for email,synced to iCloud, web surfing, and streaming music to my Apple TV at home. Also much easier to carry around when traveling.
