My son is studying sound production etc at college and his old MacBook has packed up so I have a need to replace it. I was just about to pull the trigger for the earlier model Pro on either the Apple Store or amazon (not the most recent release) when I saw the most recent Air. I see it has a slower processor but is it up to the task of running Logic Pro X without issue? I'm probably just being a bit tight and run the risk of a pee'd off son but I could feasibly save a couple of hundred quid.
Also not sure about the smallish Ssd but I guess he can use cloud storage or an external drive to back up files etc.
