    MacBook for creating apps?
    Hello All,

    I'm taking an iphone app creation class in January.
    Any ideas on which Macbook I should get?
    Macbook Pro seems logical but, the Air is tempting...
    Does the upgraded performance of the Pro matter?

    Thanks,
    Nick

    Specs:
    MacBook Pro 2.5Gz Late 2009 duo prosseser
    Go for the pro. it has a built in optical drive (so you don't have to stuff one in your bag) and the cheapest pro has almost double the processor speed and RAM of the most expensive air. Those differences do matter. Upgraded ram means more work done at a time, and faster processor means that it can do that work more times in a second.

    Thank you, your insight is greatly appreciated. I'm looking very forward to this whole process
