    My wife's Windows computer breathed it's last breath today. Everyone in this house has a Mac Book or iMac except my wife. Now I will get her a Mac. Question is do I get the Mac Book Air (13") or maybe the Mac Book Pro (without retina). She uses Word, Excel, surfing the web, e-mail, and she's heavily into genealogy which means lots of photos and pdf.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Craig

    If she does a lot of photography the retina MBP would probably be appreciated. Otherwise the Air would be fine unless the photography heavily involves photos go or video editing.

    She only saves photos from her iphone to her computer. She gets photos from others and scans photos into digital images as part of her genealogy.

    Personally, I would go with the Air. Especially since there's an iMac in the house.

    What about storage? Should I increase it to 256 or 512 GB? Also, do you recommend upgrading to the i7 core? Any other suggested upgrades?

    The storage depends on how much she needs. As far the processor, from what you've described it sounds like the i5 will be plenty enough.
