Finally got to the store today, took a look at the 15" RMBPs. I was worried about older apps but I found that the optimal resolution is not Retina option but one up ie. 1680x1050 mode on the 15" RMBP. Still the form factor is just too much of a footprint for me... 13" is ideal, 13" RMBP with the following is what I'm really wishing for... Quad core processor 8/16GB options Retina Display Dual graphics (integrated + dedicated) The 13" RMBP would really be in one up mode like a 1440x900 MBA which is what I'm typing this on. I just like having the processing power + RAM + display + graphics, but not the bigger footprint. Guessing if they do release a 13" RMBP, it might be dual core, integrated graphics only. Still might consider one of those... though it'd be sweet if they could get all the 15" goodies and a smaller panel into a 13" form factor (could live if they had to remove a port or two even). So I guess its time to wait to see if the rumors are true - and I might be one of the first ones in line if the 13" RMBP comes to reality.
