    I am interested in getting a new mac, but never had a mac before. I have apple products but never a mac. I was thinking of getting a macbook air and 11 inches, but not sure how the screen is. People say that it is small and that is it up to the person. So far i can afford it, but i can wait to get the macbook pro 13 inches. I want a macbook not only to have fun with, but to also learn about ios programming. The macbook air that comes with 11 inches, comes with 4 gb of RAM and 128 GB of hard drive. I ordered it and i can refuse it if i should wait to get the macbook pro. What do you guys think? I was even thinking of getting a imac 21, but not sure at this point.

    If you plan on hooking it up to an external monitor, then the 11" would be ok to learn programming. Personally I wouldn't use a
    screen size of under 15" for development purposes. I'm not an iOS developer although I've dabbled with it at home, but I am a programmer by trade and currently I use two 24" monitors at work and sometimes want more screen space. So I would say the 11" is definitely too small and for me even the 13" would be for development purposes. For other stuff like movies, photos, web surfing etc though those sizes would be fine.

    I am just interesting in learning ios and not sure how far i go into it. It is either the 11 inch macbook air or 13 inches pro. People say that 11 inch is doable so will try out the 11 for a while and see how it goes, i have 30 days to try it out and see if i like it and all, and not sure how serious i am with ios so will just dabble with it.
