    I'm thinking about selling both my rMBP and Asus Zenbook prime to get a 13" 8gb i5 MBA. I perhaps might need it for windows and running a few programs that only need a single core (PhD stuff) along with the usual Word/net etc. Do you think a MBA would be ok for this?

    I think the MBA can handle those things nicely but wouldn't you prefer staying with the rMBP and selling just the asus? I think it just makes more sense because you still keep a better screen and hardware.
    Or do you need the new MBA for the battery and even bigger portability?
    If so go ahead and buy it!

    If the MBA couldn't do these basic tasks, what could it do?

    Why? the macbook air is a good product sure, but why sell a pro for it? I say keep your laptops man.
