    Question MacBook Air 2017 vs MacBook Pro 2015: Which one to choose?

    I want to buy my first MacBook. Currently, I am on a tight budget. 2 MacBooks are in my range. One is MacBook Air 2017 i5 13inch vs MacBook Pro 2015 i5 13 inch. I am an undergrad computer science student. I primarily need a laptop for programming. Which one would be a wiser choice overall?
