Good news! As of today, sold my base Mid 2012 15" rMBP to put towards a new 11" Haswell MBA when they're revealed next week (+ AppleCare, a case, and I'll pocket the rest). I sold the 15" rMBP because I also have a Late 2012 maxed-out 27" iMac. I felt like I had two primary machines, in a sense, which was overkill/superfluous for my needs. So, I feel like with an 11" MBA, I'll have more duality in my setup with an ultra-portable laptop and a beast of a desktop. Throughout the year of having my 15" rMBP, I only put 20 cycles on the battery, which pretty much defeated the purpose of it being a laptop. That's going to be drastically different with an 11" MBA, I'll bring that thing with me everywhere (especially since I'm a college student). Anyone else rocking a similar setup? I've heard from others that they love it. I'm thrilled.
