Is a retina MBA a bad investment?
I just sold my current computer and was wondering if a MacBook Pro with retina is a bad investment. Should I get the air?? I want to buy it with the back to school promo

Computers are not generally good invests, usually they are worth less each day you own them. If you plan to do some work with them that will make you money, perhaps it's an investment. In that case, buy the most powerful computer that best helps you do the work you need to do. But generally, I wouldn't think of the computer as an investment.

Unless you are using it to make money, any computer is about the WORST "investment" you can possibly make.
Very few other items depreciate approximately 80-100% over 3 years.

Given the above, the best financial solution is to spend the minimum required to get what you need/will be happy with. Unless you have some fairly specific needs, the MBA 13" will probably cover you quite easily.
