    I was hoping for a 13" Retina MBP. I like the 15" Retina but I don't really need a 15" laptop. I like the portability of the MBP 13. I currently have a Mid-2010 MBP 13.

    I have no need for an optical drive and the 13" MBA looks good but I don't really need a laptop that portable. For me a 13" Retina MBP would be the perfect size.

    It would be nice if I knew if a 13" Retina is coming out or not. I could always get a 13 MBA or 15 Retina MBP and sell it later i guess. Also, does anyone know if there is any limit on how many apple store gift cards can be used in one order?

    As far as the gift cards. I don't think it matters how many you can use. I'm kind of in the same boat as you. I've had my 13" MBP and i think its the perfect portable laptop. I was really looking to upgrade to a 13" Retina but after much contemplation, I will get the 15" Retina. Why?

    I checked out the 15" Retina today and it's light as hell. It's even lighter than the 13" MBP and its thinner. For me it's nearly just as portable and I also get the 15" screen real estate. I've always wanted a bigger screen and I think I will settle with the retina.

    Get the retina, if 13" comes out. Just sell it and downgrade. Ill likely do the same thing.

    Thanks a lot for your reply. I was leaning towards the Retina 15 because it seems like a good value because i need at least 256 GB. I don't think 128 GB would cut it for me.

    I will have to wait until I can see one in person.

    Thanks!

    Your current laptop is only 2 years old. Why not wait at least a year to buy another? My suggestion is keep yours, as prices drop and specs increase, upgrade in 1-2 years.

    I'm planning on giving my MBP 2010 to my fiancée. She currently has a 2009 White Macbook and I'm selling that one for $500.
