I've got the latest 13" rMBP and still can't find it fancy enough to travel with. (check out my username again) The gold or space gray rMB looks fascinating, but I think it's a better idea to go for the OSX/iOS combination rather than OSX/OSX. Yup, I'm buying as a secondary device. The extraordinarily big screen is a game changer for me, guess the 9.7" doesn't worth that much more compared to the Air. (They're 200 bucks apart) I'd mainly use it for leisure time, entertainments such as video streaming, emails, and basically what you do on your tablets. It will spend more time on my bed than on the desk, good use for the 12.9? Also, getting a keyboard for me is a must, can't see anything more than an extra-sized tablet without the keyboard or pencil. I will do a lot of word processing using Word as well. Seems like it's going to be money worth-spent. I honestly don't care about the camera at all, whether having capabilities of an old Nokia or the EOS 7D. Arguably very inconvenient to take pictures on a gadget as big as a notebook. and that doesn't look cool or fancy at all An axe to grind, it was released nearly half a year ago, and if Apple decides to release the 2nd generation in half a year or so, then I call it a waste for me, spending on something so expensive to find an upgraded version coming out before you even get the best out of your gadget, just not right, in my opinion. If they're going to release it in less than a year, then it might not be the best idea for me to go for, if more than a year, I might just snatch one out of the store this weekend. Anybody has an idea when? Looking at what I want currently, wait for the iPP 2 or just get it this weekend?
