Which Mac Laptop?
I am looking for a Macbook for doing light web development work and for taking to clients offices when I go to meetings. I'm also starting to learn iOS development so would be good to do that on it to.
However, I'm really struggling to decide on which Macbook to get. I like the idea of the all day battery on the Macbook Air but the low GHz of the CPU worries me.
So, my choices are pretty much the 13" Macbook Pro or the 15" Macbook Pro. I couldn't really justify the extra expense for the retina screen unless it's going to give me more screen real estate on the 13" retina than the 15" LED?
Any advice would be great
27" iMac - 2.9GHz Intel Core i5, 16GB DDR3, 1TB HDD
iPad Mini - 8GB Wifi White
iPhone 4S - 32GB Black

Don't let the low power scare you unless you're needing the power for heavy editing or something like that. The processors now are very efficient.
Example.... My 2006 2.0 Ghz Core Duo would heat up full fans when watching Netflix, YouTube, or playing Facebook games (FarmVille?!).
My 2010 2.4 Ghz Core 2 Duo MBP doesn't break a sweat doing any of that.
2010 MBP 13" 2.4GHz 4GB RAM 750GB HDD iMac G4 20" 1.25GHZ 1.5GB RAM 140GB HDD
iPhone 5S 4" 32GB Apple TV 3rd gen
