I've had a MacBook Pro in the past, but stopped using it several years ago when it developed a charging issue that even the geniuses couldn't figure out. Needing to have it plugged in 100% of the time kinda defeated the purpose, so the kids took it over and I've been only working on my desktop since then.
I'm looking to get a laptop again as a backup computer, and I need to know whether it is reasonable to consider a MacBook Air for my needs. I work with InDesign, Dreamweaver, Photoshop, and Illustrator on a daily basis. I like the price tag of the MacBook Air, longer battery life, and light weight. I was going to upgrade to 8MB RAM… but does anyone have experience running these apps on a MacBook Air? Will it be an exercise in futility?
Thanks in advance for any guidance!
I use all of those app on my 2012 model and everything is fine with an i5 with 8GB. Not screaming fast, mind you, but for everyday task it’s fine.
Note that this is not my primary machine.
Thank you! Once I factored in the educational discount, there was only a $61 difference between the MacBook Air and the MacBook Pro…. then it became a no-brainer.
