I just received my 13" i5/8/256 today. I've been working on it for a few hours, and I have a few observations for any media people who continue to be unsure of which laptop to choose. 1. The screen is fine. I was lucky and received a Samsung screen, but it is very sharp and accurate for a TN panel. Of course, if I do any print work, I'll work on an UltraSharp, but this works fine for all other work. The resolution is quite good— I can barely see the pixels at a normal viewing distance. 2. The GPU performance is more than sufficient. I was worried about moving from a discrete GPU to an Intel, but the HD5000 really impressed me with how quickly and fluidly it worked with CS6 and Lightroom 5. Overall, I'm extremely pleased with this product. Again, I was lucky it seems— I received a product with the best screen and without a single visible cosmetic defect. Apple has a winner in the '13 MBA, and photographers should not hesitate to pull the trigger. Edit: In addition, the new SSD interface has really blown me away in terms of performance. I've found it to be significantly faster than my old 2010 with a Crucial M4.
