    Specs:
    15" MB Pro, 2.66 i7 ; 11 MBA 1.8GZ i7; 13"MBA 2GZ i7 8 GB mem 512GB SSD, 2 iPad3s, 1 iPad Mini
    Huge difference in drives and speed of the machine related thereto. My 13" MB Air with 8G Ram, 2G i7 dual core processor, and 512 G SSD is about eight times faster than my 15" MB Pro with the same amount of memory, 2.66 G i7 processor and 500 G 7200 RPM HDD.

    If it were my money, I'd go with the MB Air because of the speed and portability but specify it now for upgrades as you won't be doing that later.

    Depends on the gaming, as neither are "gaming machines".

    You need to get the best video card you can (top end 15") before you really want to think about gaming.
