I currently have a late 2013 13" rMBP (8/256 model). Probably overkill for what I do with it, but it is a sweet machine! I use it at my desk with the lid closed and connected to a monitor/keyboard/mouse probably for 75% of it's usage. I am considering selling it (hoping to get ~$1100-$1200 for it) and get a new 13" MacBook Air. Likely the base MBA with the 4/128 config since I don't really tax the machine and much of my storage is on my server Mac Mini and in the cloud across Dropbox, Google Drive, and OneDrive (with all my apps and what is sync'd to those cloud drives, I am only using 51 GB of SSD space on my rMBP). The reason to sell the rMBP is 1.) I probably underutilize it and 2.) to have some extra cash of course (likely applied towards iPhone 6). Main downgrade of course would be from the sweet retina display to the 1440x900. But with the edu coupon at BB and after tax and 10% back in rewards, the 13" MBA would cost me a net of less than $800. Think it's worth "downgrading" to the MBA from rMBP based on being docked so much? My wife has this MBA and it seems to be decent (at least for her use). Thanks!
