Hi guys, I am interested to compare pros and cons of: rMBP (15 inch, 512GB) vs. MBA (13 inch, 128GB) + iMac (21.5, 2.7GHz) I have MacBook Pro with Retina Display 15 inches, I recently bought it in Sydney, Australia (July 21). I bought it in my local Apple Store, mainly it has: 2.6GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 8GB RAM 512 GB Flash Storage Here it costs $3199 AUD, but I got it with student discount at $2979 I am very happy with the rMBP 15", the retina display is great, the CPU speed is perfect (I need to use latest Photoshop, Flash and 3 browsers with 40 tabs open each). What I don't like so much is that it is quite heavy to carry, I mainly use it in my room, is not confortable to take it to classes. Other think that I don't like is that for example when I use Photoshop I feel more confortable using the big screens, like in the old iMacs at University. My rMBP has 3 months of use, so I dont think I qualify for an Apple refund, so maybe I can re-sell it in eBay or in the university boards (UTS) at something around $2600 AUD (I hope). Doing some numbers, if I get that money I can buy a MBA 13" 128GB and the new iMac 21.5" (the cheapest). Both cost $1350 + $1429 = $2779 AUD. With student discount both are: $1299 (MBA13) + $1379 (iMac 21.5 2.7GHz) = $2678 AUD Should I sell it to buy those two? - I will be loosing the retina display, the MBA and new iMac dont have it. - I will be loosing a i7 CPU. The iMac has an i5. - I will be loosing the 512GB in SSD, for just 128GB SSD in the MBA. I dont like HDD, they are noisy and unreliable. - I will be winning a big screen to work at home, more confortable for media software. - I will be winning a lot of portability (specially in the weight) with a MBA, but loosing screen size in laptop. - 8GB of RAM is in both, rMBP and iMac. What do you think? I bet I am not the only one thinking to sell a new rMB for an iMac and MBA, or considering wich options be better to buy.
