New MacBook Air vs. MacBook Pro for Reason and Live
I currently use a 24" iMac for my music production, running Reason and Ableton Live. I have money to get a laptop now and I am really attracted to the highest end 13" MacBook Air, because of the looks and the portability. While shopping, I found that I could also get a 15" MacBook Pro 2.53ghz 500gig 4gigRam for about $100 more than the 4gig Ram 13" MacBook Air.
I've done some research, and they are saying that the MacBook Air does better than the 13" MacBook pro. The thing I would miss most would be a firewire port on the Air.
I also do some video editing, just using iMovie, not FinalCutPro. I do most work in Reason and Live, making many tracks of audio. Yet, the bulk of my work can be done at home on my 24" iMac, which I have a really nice padded case with wheels, so I've been travelling with it. I travel a lot, and would like to get a laptop, leave my iMac at home, and continue making music/editing video on the road.
Could my iMac communicate with my MacBook Air while I'm on the road, if I leave the iMac on, via Mobile Me?
Also, does anyone think that the MacBook Air could be a viable touring machine for music production and video editing while travelling?
What do you use when you travel, and why? Thanks in advance!
