    As a portable machine - MacBook with dongle or MacBook Pro? With the dongle, they're the same price.

    Best is subjective. What are your needs?

    I prefer a 15" laptop and that being the case, for me the MBP is the best portable machine.

    What do you mean MBP with a dongle, what sort of dongle are you envisioning with the MBP.. I can understand the need for a dongle with the new MacBook but not the current MBPs

    Depends heavily on your capability needs. RMBP is better price/performance.

    Unless portability is your absolute priority the 13" MBPr is a clear winner by a fair margin; performance, battery life, ports & storage. The new Retina Macbook in it`s current form is rather compromised, 13" MBPr is presently a far more balanced Notebook.

    I chose the Pro, the extra weight doesn't bother me.

    Though the new mackbook is quite cool, i would go with the Pro as well. Also the larger screen would be preferable in my opinion.
