I am going to use it for very basic stuff.
Checking the email, web research, to watch movies "on the go", and some minor photo editing.
I am aware that this does not require such a powerful machine.
The iPad would be enough.
However, having had the ipad, I feel like when I need to edit an excel spreadsheet, a word doc and so on, I cannot get anything done on the ipad.
A basic Macbook air is going to be enough, I thought.
However, reading reviews of the basic macbook air late 2010, I see it struggles a bit when playing HD content (HD youtube videos)...
Well, I'd rather spend a few more bucks and end avoid any of the above...
Maybe the late 2010 top version, with 4GB ram, 1.6 Ghz processor and SSD 128GB could be sufficient... and not too slow compared to the new models
