Older 13" Mac Pro worth getting for travel?
6 months ago

I need a laptop to take along when traveling and to save on costs am considering an older (around 2009-2011) second hand 13" Macbook Pro. Are these computers still usable for photography on the go? I'm also considering a second hand 13" Macbook Air but for the same cost as the 13" Macbook Pro I will lose out on upgradeable RAM and other goodies such as built-in Ethernet ports, Firewire and DVD-burner. On the other hand the Air is lighter to bring along. In any case I'm sure either will be a huge step up from my 1.67GHz 15" Powerbook G4.

My main computer is a 2010 quad-core 2.4GHz Mac Pro 5.1, so the laptop will mainly be used for travel meaning memory-card dumps, quick sorting/organizing using Lightroom and some quick and relatively light editing using Lightroom and/or Photoshop.
