    Hi,

    I want to buy a macbook air, i saw a macbook air mid 2012 for a nice price. I'm gonna use adobe software (photoshop, illustrator, indesign), can I use these software on the macbook air without struggles? And also, I'm thinking about learning to develop apps, is this macbook strong enough?

    Thanks!!

    Your question is something that is impossible for us to answer for YOU...since it is your decision and you gave us such basic information about the usage you'd be putting into it. Can the Macbook Air run those Adobe tools? Of course...will it be the optimal system for heavy graphical work and app development? Probably not.

    It's always better to have the best machine your budget can afford...if your budget only allows for a Macbook Air, then I guess you have your answer.

    Not to mention and I don't mean this as cut if you understand but you asked this 2 times the other day and we told you the same thing. You are the only one who is going to use it so you should be the only one to make the choice.

    You're okay, but just know that, upon seeking advice, know that the decision to buy rests solely with you. Some people have a difficult time with that part and want others to make the choice for them. That's all.

    What was said by me was to simply make sure you understood that was was just said by another person here, Nobody especially me is annoyed, On the contrary I wanted you to make sure that you totally understood that as said it all rests on you. Of course this is to ask questions and asking as many as you want will not have us make YOUR mind up. Please don't misunderstand me at all. I nor anyone here knows your lifestyle and what you are going to do solely rests on your shoulders. Excuse the misunderstanding - Make your decision and stick with it. Good luck with your decision.

    Alright, thank you. I thought maybe the air would be to slow, i'm not familiar with technical stuff and specs so it could be that the macbook air 2012 would be to slow.

    A 2012 MacBook Air will be fine for app development. And I don't want to discourage you because anyone can put the effort in to learn, but if you aren't technical enough to decide which Mac is the right one for you, I have some doubts that you'll be technical enough to learn how to develop apps.
