Hi Everyone,

First and foremost thank you for your time and help.

I've been waiting forever to buy a laptop. My black macbook is almost dead.

I really need to begin organizing my life and using software for finances, organization, etc.

For fun I was hoping to begin using a go pro to capture my trail runs, and very novice stuff to attach to a blog I want to create. Always on hold because my computer wouldn't work with something or the other. Of course music storage, web surfing, and word processing I would do too, which i know both could do well.

I was thinking of buying the MBA 13 with 512 flash, 8gb memory but I noticed the same upgrades would yield to the same price of 13 inch Macbook pro retina at macmall.

My hold up, is I like to keep my laptops for a long time. However I don't want to make a bad purchase. I don't want to wait till October/November for an updated MBr which I know will cost more then this deal right now. Since battery really won't be an issue, i dont see why you can't haul your cord with you to a coffee shop is a big deal .

What do you guys think?

Thanks again for all your help.

I got the i7 8gb ram and 256 gb model with overnight shipping for 1500 flat with macmall!
best computer I have ever used!

I wouldn't buy the 13" rMBP or 13" cMBP right now - they're about to be refreshed.

Do you thing the cMBP is going to be refreshed or would it probably be dropped?
Perhaps Apple will slightly reduce prices on rMBPs instead?
