I like speed.
I'm just using the computer for browsing websites, iTunes, HuLu and saving photos.

I purchased a MacBook Air (due to it's small / lightweight), now it's freezing (not even 24 hrs after having the device), so, it has me thinking of exchanging for a Pro. I need your expert opinions between these three options:

13 inch : 256 GB // 1.7 GhZ dual-core Intel Core i5 // 4GB memory // 256 GB flash storage // Intel HD Graphics 3000 for $1,599 (Air)


15 inch : 2.2 GHz // 2.2 GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 // 4GB memory // 500 GB // Intel HD Graphics 3000 // AMD Radeon HD 6750 M with 512 MB GDRS for $1,799 (MacBook Pro)

or 13 inch : 2.8 GHz // 2.8 GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 // 4GB memory // 750 GB // Intel Graphics 3000 for $1,499 (MacBook Pro)

What is the difference? I'm computer specs illiterate. Thanks!!

Well, I would figure out what is wrong with the Air you have. That is more than sufficient for your stated needs. I have the 13 inch i5 MacBook Pro and like it, so if your insistent on exchanging the Air a MacBook Pro of equal price will be fine.
