I need a new Mac laptop for my daughter as required for her school(private school, 6th grade). I hear there will be a lot of multimedia projects via keynote and maybe Iphoto/Imovie. I'm thinking about about a 13" macbook air 8gigs ram i5 256 ssd. I could go slower with 4gigs but I think the multimedia stuff would suffer. We plan to dump it and refresh for highschool 3 yrs later.
