    i need it for some photo editing and programming and i need to carry it around.But the weight difference of the two is very small so its ok for me.

    i have seen mba screen in apple store, its just suck, the text is very pixel,apart from that other aspect of 2013mba13 is good.

    for the ref 2012rmpb13, i heard that its going to be upgrade soon,so buying it now would seem to be stupid if it happened.But i really like the retina display,its just superior than that of mba.But HD4000 may be not enough for future use.

    Since both are similar in price,what should i get?.

    Well I think the choice is kind of obvious isn't it? But if I were you I would wait for the haswell upgrades, unless you really need it now.
