    Argggg, driving me nuts

    i've had my refurbished macbook pro 15.6 retina, 2.3ghz, 8gb ram, 256ssd for about 2 months now and it's unreal, 6.5 hours battery life with 10.9

    i've now looked over the new haswell air and was wondering if it was a better option for my use?

    The air i'm looking at is the i7, 8gb, 256ssd for $1549.99, i paid $1599 for the rMBP.

    I can turn around and sell the mbp for what i paid for it.

    Here is my usage
    Web browsing, watching movies, gaming such as emulation(nes, snes, psx, gamecube) playing games like diablo 2/3, torchlight, etc.

    I travel for work maybe 4-5x per year so portability isn't a huge issue for me.

    Should I hang on to the rMBP or move to the MBA?
