    The MacBook Air would work fine for web/app development. Are you doing game dev I would go up a level to one of the pros. Especially to get a better GPU/CPU.

    This only applies if you need to program in an xcode environment.....macbook is far from being "fast and efficient". Pathetic anemic CPU that can't even hold it's proper clockspeeds. The ideal route would be even better to grab a hackintosh capable laptop and use that to program in xcode (like I used to do...) because Macbook "Pro" is not remotely "Pro" since 2011.

    Nevermind the anemic specifications at that price point, have you tried typing on a new Macbook or Macbook "Pro" keyboard? Absolutely sh!t key travel and tactility, I demo'd one in the store before ruling it out completely. I still use an older Alienware or Thinkpad because those keyboards are GOLD for typing as far as laptops are concerned. MSI GT82 also has a desktop grade keyboard, but not very portable.
