Which macbook is better for me

Which macbook is better for me:
- Macbook Pro 15˝ retina
- Macbook Air 13˝ 256GB

I would use it for:
- Making videos (final cut)
- Using for pages, keynote etc.
- Fl studio,
- Adobe photoshop and after effects,
- For games like minecraft, gta etc.
- And for screen recording.

If there is no such a difference I would rather buy Macbook Air because it's cheaper.

    It sounds like you have a bit of a dilemma, on your hands!

    Let me see if I can help, You say you would use it for:

    "- Making videos (final cut)
    - Using for pages, keynote etc.
    - Fl studio,
    - Adobe photoshop and after effects,
    - For games like minecraft, gta etc.
    - And for screen recording. "

    It really depends on what final configurations you plan on going with, for example 8GB ram i7 processor. When you mention that you want to make videos, run Adobe photoshop, and play games like Minecraft, I would really recommend the MacBook Pro for a few reasons. The first being the Retina display. This is because when you are editing photos or video you will get the highest resolution available and see your pictures and videos the way they are supposed to look. The second reason is performance. The MacBook Pro with Retina comes preconfigured with the i7 processor and 8GB of ram for the base model. This will certainly give you a better experience when it comes to rendering your videos and playing your games. The MacBook Air's processors, even if you configure it with the i7, will not be as fast as they are designed to conserve battery life.

    My question for you would be, do you prefer something that is easier to take everywhere? Because the MacBook Air is much lighter and portable and has extreme battery life. Otherwise, for your needs I think you benefit most from the MacBook Pro Retina.
