Hey all. I need help making decisions. I am purchasing my first Mac. I have been a PC guy all my life but for the field of work I'm going into (telecom major wanting to go work in networks) I realize I need to become familiar with Mac and all they do, so I've got two models I can't choose between. They are: 13 inch Air, 2 GHz CPU, 8 gb RAM, 256 gb ssd with AppleCare at $1930 Or rMBP, 2.6 GHz CPU, 16 gb RAM, 256 gb ssd without AppleCare (but will purchase within the year.) at $2410 Pretty much it will be for browsing, document editing, comic reading, light gaming if I get the retina. Also my coursework has audio, video, and flash editing and work on it, but I don't think my direction will have me doing those. I currently have an Alienware m15x I intend to keep siting at my desk, and use the Mac to take around campus and such. I like the air for the portability, but I like the retina because it's cutting edge, and I can do a little gaming with it. I feel like caring the retina won't be an issue with me, as I've adjusted to the 10lb behemoth that is my Alienware (I love it dearly, don't get me wrong). What I worry about is the future. The retina seems like I could get 3 or 4 years out of hopefully, but I'm not sure if the Air can keep up outside of maybe 2, or I may be bad at my future estimations. So basically I'm taking what will be the best for the future into my decision. What do you all think?
