Mac Technical Support forum missing
I'm not saying "eww, Mac, go away".
I'm saying "not a Technical Support issue".
Surely you could just give the guy a hand instead of going down the "this is not a technical support forum I must not answer it but only give a lecture about how its wrong to post here" Your not a blue poster and its not your job to tell people where they can and cannot post so quit pretending it is and post something constructive.
Moranius to be perfectly honest neither will be great for playing World of Warcraft, they are not gaming grade machines and considering both use Intel HD 3000 graphics I suspect you will struggle to hit ultra and a decent framerate.
Macs are not gaming machines they are designed for video and graphic editing mainly and thats what they do best, unless your planning on using this machine for such a thing quite honestly its not a particularly good buy as if you want to primaraly play WoW you will need to get the Macbook Pro with a ATI Radeon Graphics Card (not the model you listed) which weighs in at around £1,500 ($1,700 USD on the Apple site) and even then the card it gives you will probs not be able to run WoW on ultra at 60 FPS (I might be wrong)
For £1,500 you could get a great desktop that will run pretty much any game on the market with no problem or a laptop that will be able to run WoW on ultra and play any other game on the market. an example would be this
Much better specification, bigger screen.
To conclude if you are looking for a PC primarly for your high school work and something that can run WoW every now and then sure go with the Mac as they can run Adobe applications better than any PC.
However if you want to do alot of gaming a Windows Laptop will be better as you will get a better system for your money that can run any game on the market and furthermore it will run Adobe programs absoloutely fine.
Next to that, the standard SSD should be a performance increase over the HDD in the MBP.
True, however the SSDs available are not that large and as a primary drive (considering the Macbook Air has no secondary drive bay) the OP will probs need to buy a external hard drive to save files too otherwise them SSDs will fill up quite quick, especially if you choose a 128GB one, as for the 256GB one I suspect its quite pricey, I know they sell a 500GB SSD with Apple Macbooks but that costs £500 to add to the system which granted is a reasonable price for the size of the SSD but overall its a lot of money to part with.
To be honest looking at the Macbook Air I can't help but feel its Apples answer to the Netbook all be it a bit higher spec, granted it can probs run Adobe Suite absoloutely fine but gaming on it would be difficult.
