Hello folks! I am going to replace my MacBookPro (5 years old) with a macbook air. I will be traveling quite a bit and need to lighten up (plus this laptop is showing all of the signs of looming problems. Current MBP has 4GB of memory and 500GB harddrive (of which I'm using 400gb). Work will pay for it, thank Dog.

Any advice on the Air, particularly on specs? I assume I don't need more than the 500GB I have now, which is already quite a bump in price.

I thought I had posting privileges on Whitenoise from the invitation a couple of weeks ago, but it must have been revoked. Mess up one little gif :(
