So if you have an iPad Air or iPad Air 2 with a Bluetooth keyboard, would you still go for a 12" MacBook, or would you be better off with a 13" Air or Pro?

it's extremely light, feels high quality, and compact. force touch trackpad is okay but not really used to the keyboard. that key travel is too little.

Yea, I read a number of reviews saying the keyboard needs some getting used to and also one reviewer mentioned that she feels that her wrists tire faster using the new Macbook compared to her current MBA...

Depending on usage. If you comfortable with using it for surfing, minor graphic editing, office work and stuff, it ok. But if you're into video editing like Final Cut Pro X or do web design, apps programming or Motion/After Effects stuff, then Pro is the way to go smile.gif

For me it's just work and web browsing, but I'd like to have dual boot option with Windows 8. Is 4GB RAM and 128GB sufficient?

Hmm, first of all you will need at least 50gb space to dual boots. 2nd, with 4gb ram it's quite okay, but if can upgrade the ram smile.gif

Then I'll most likely need 8GB RAM and 256GB at least. But just one USB C port? Sigh...

I prefer MBA. There are so many things that you can do with it.

I mostly use iPad for web browsing.
