Hello everyone,

I am about to buy a MBA 11" for my early 2013 four week trip to Asia. I travel about 2 1/2 months a year and was wondering if the 180€ upgrade to i7 was really worth it?

Besides the obvious movies and web browsing I plan to be taking around 50 pictures a day with my Canon S100 and do some Lightroom 4 or Aperture 3 retouching on a dozen or so of them.

Any suggestions?

Best Regards,

Vincent

I would say yes. I have a MacBook Air, and it has the 1.8GHz i7 and it runs LR4 just fine.

I would also recommend the 256 GB SSD. I now use this all the time, connecting it to an external display.
