So, I am looking to get a new laptop, but am getting a bit confused as I haven't had to research things in quite some time. The intended use for the new machine (which is replacing a Dell XPS M1530 from early '08) will include mainly Internet, movies, the occasional Office use, and the every-now-and-again game, like Splinter Cell. So, I am looking at the Air or the 13" Retina. My question is not about that (I figure ANYTHING is heads and shoulders better than what I currently use); I was just giving background. 1) Even at the lower resolution of 1440x900 of the Air, is this considered "Full HD"? I know it doesn't have 1080 in it, but on a smaller screen..... 2) Would either of these two machines power the listed game (and those similar) well enough to play? I ran Splinter Cell: Double Agent on my XPS, so I figure it might work? Does more RAM help with this (system RAM, obviously)? 3) Is Haswell worth it for my intended uses? Like, would I see a noticeable difference in how I would use the machine? Thanks in advance. I have seen all the Air-vs-Retina threads and the Haswell-is-coming threads, but I figure I'm not looking for the latest and greatest, just the greatest for me with price in mind. Again, thanks.
