if i can hold off buying until the 2013 models are released, i would, however, i do need a laptop within a week. i'm just a little lost to which machine i should go with, the 11 or the 13 air. I played with the 11" and liked the form factor and i don't mind the smaller screen. has anyone faced a similar situation on choosing between the 11 and 13 air. anyone noticed any performance lag on the air and would you recommend the 13" retina instead? i'd rather have the smallest and lightest machine. usage: . illustrator, photoshop, dreamweaver, indesign . would like to dabble more with after effects and premier thanks!
