Macbook Air i5/128/8 for computer science?
So I'm thinking of getting MB air for college. Can't afford the 256 GB model, nor the pros.
My college classes might require me to install Linux or Windows along with MacOs. Is 128 GB enough to run both MacOs and either of Linux or widows? And also the projects I'll be doing in class? And are the overall specs enough to run 2 OSs?

128GB is going to be very tight. Subtract about 20Gb off the bat just for a Windows installation. Any programs will be on top of that. Your best bet it to use parallels. You'll be able to run it with those specs. However, definitely you will run out of space eventually. Don't play on using your laptop for games, or movies, or anything like that because it will eat up your storage space in an instant.
