    I currently have a 2010 13" MacBook Pro. It's been overheating, running really slow, crashing, freezing, and having some problems.

    I am probably upgrading to a rMBP when the Haswell version is released... So my main question is, what are the pros and cons of the i5 & i7?

    I mostly use my computer to browse the internet, use skype, code in eclipse and textwrangler, use photoshop and SSH through terminal

    According to your usage, i5 is more than enough. Spend the extra money for a 512GB SSD...

    Great, then spend the extra money to get Applecare if you don't live in UE zone... :D
