Hello, i need some advice and opinions regarding if its a good idea to buy a mackbook air (128 gb ssd) or stick with a normal 14 inch laptop with i5 and 1 tb,4 gb ram. I do normal stuff, some gaming like dota 2, rift, eve online, i read a lot, and i think to boot camp the mac air for some games. So my big concern is if the screen is really to small, and if there a big difference with intel hd5000 graphics vs hd 4400?.

Thank you, and sorry if my english its really bad.

I would go with the 14' laptop as you have much more room on the hard drive and you will have a better gaming machine, particularly if it is the one with the hd5000 GPU
 
If you want portability and long battery life (and want to make a statement), go with Mac. You will strain your eyes, and carry additional external HDD to store these movies. For everything else, go with "normal 14" laptop", just avoid crappy 1366x768 screens.
