So a few weeks ago while at college somebody stole my early 2011 13 inch MBP. It happened right before finals week to make matters worse. That's all in the past now and what's done is done. My insurance is covering it and has given me $1300 to help pay for a new MBP. Since I wasn't exactly in the market for a new MBP I haven't really given much thought to whether I should buy the rMBP or cMBP although I am certain I want to stay at the 13 inch model. I'm a mathematics major and my computing is that of an "average" user (web browsing, email, iTunes, iPhoto, Skype, downloading files, iLife suite). This laptop is simply a replacement for my stolen one with little extra cost (other than a slight increase in insurance payments). My previous MBP satisfied my needs in every way and was never altered (it was the "upgraded" base model). Any thoughts and suggestions are welcome. Thanks!
