I am a designer and I have an old 15" Macbook Pro. It's 7 years old, 4GB RAM and is running really slow.
I can't really afford the top end 15" Retina laptop so am considering getting the 13" Air.
Now I only use my laptop for work when I'm on vacation, so realistically I'm looking at 20 hours a year as for the rest of the time I'd be using for for movies on planes, internet and just bits and pieces. Microsoft
For design I use Adobe Indesign, Illustrator and Photoshop with sometimes Microsoft Word.
I know the screen is small but I do like the Air - what do you guys think?
I use a MBA as a second machine and do occasional work on it. It’s 2012 model with 8GB RAM and an i5 processor.
I wouldn’t use it as a main machine for heavy lifting but for some InDesign use now and again? It should be fine.
