Hey MR, I know Haswell is just around the corner but hear me out please and let me know your thoughts. Last year I fell for the Apple Marketing and bought a fully loaded 15" rMBP for an inordinate amount of money, planning to keep it for years to come. This year life situations changed and I needed to get some money together so I sold it. Now I need another laptop ASAP Fortunately my employer has a purchase plan where they will pay for the computer and take deductions over a few years interest free. Last year I couldn't use the program as my iMac was still being paid off but I'm eligible now. While there were certainly some smoothness issues with the UI on the 15" retina I sold, it didn't bother me all that much and I'd much rather have jerky retina then smooth animations on a pixelated screen of a macbook air staring me in the face. Went to the Apple store today and just couldn't get past how aged the air display looks after a year of using the retina... (sorry to anyone rocking the airs, its just my opinion) Anyways, I lived with the jerkyness of the 15" and most the time had the IGP forced to save battery. I am a network admin so I'm not doing anything really processor or graphics intensive, typically I have a windows XP virtual machine at all times with a bunch of SSH windows and some java stuff, safari, excel, iTunes and mail running. I think I'm going to be happy with a loaded 13" retina, its more portable than the 15" I gave up and I can't imagine waiting until Sept or longer without a laptop. Sure the redic battery of the Air would be awesome, but not if it means staring at that screen all day! Should I pull the trigger?
