    I can tell you right now, the Macbook Air is the Apple computer for you. It's the most portable and has enough power, but is meant for people who want an excellent experience but don't demand a ton from their computer. I would get the 13-inch model, just because it's nice to have the extra screen space, plus it has an SD card slot if you ever want to put pictures on it. I'd also spring for 256GB of storage; 128GB fills up quickly for most people. If you want to be sure your computer never slows down because it's trying to do too much at once, you could get 8GB of RAM too, but, realistically, 4GB will probably be plenty for what you're using it for and you'd be saving $100.
    You really don't have to think about getting a desktop computer like an iMac, in my opinion. The only people who need those are people who use their computers a lot but are 100% sure that they won't need to move it around. The minute that you wish you could take your computer with you is the minute that getting a laptop would be worth it.

    If you're just doing basic stuff like you're talking about and you don't do it very often, you could save a lot of money and still get a pretty good laptop from a different company. However, Macs offer an amazing experience and last a really long time, so, if you have the money, I can see why you would want once.

    Let me know if you have more questions.
