I am going to get into web development soon. My cousin does it for a living and says that Mac's are better. I was looking at getting a 13 inch MacBook Air with 8gb ram, 256gb SSD, and i5 cpu. That would be $1340.
As far as web development goes, does it matter if you pick Windows or a Mac laptop? Is one guy on a Mac and another on a Windows going to mess up a project?
My price range is $1300. I want something with a 256gb SSD,13 to 15 inch screen, 8gb ram, ultrabook slim, good enough cpu, and maybe some graphics that are as good or better than the intel Hd Graphics 5000. Mac's have that intel hd graphics 5000. thats pretty fast compared to the other ultrabooks ive seen. It would be cool to play some games at low settings.
I may wait for the next cpu's to come out because that would mean another big increase in graphics and power efficiency. Although I want a laptop really bad, so I probably wont wait.
