Other than tech specs, be sure to try out the demo models at retailers/Apple Store.

Personally i dislike the Macbook 12" because the screen hinge is too flimsy (will shake upon movement), due to its very thin frame. The latest Pro isnt too heavy at 1.3kg for the 13" model now.

Do you do your photography workflow on your Macbook?
Get a Pro instead.

If do photography workflow on the MacBook. The most important thing would be the style and look factor of the MAC. So dude should get a MacBook Air instead lol.

I notice the sound on macbook sounds better then mba... mba seems to have softer sound even my current one. Maybe cos hidden speaker.

Pro a bit out of my budget haha

Consider getting the 2015 MBP 15inches? I think they are selling a new set still when I checked 2-3 weeks ago. It has the essential ports.

If you're not gifting to anyone.
Do consider looking at the refurbished store, it comes with the same 1 year warranty and you're eligible to extend it to 3 years.

MBA for me. Hands down.

Most value for money, practical, numerous ports, faster processor, sleek beautiful design.
