I have looked at most of the questions regarding the new 2015 13" MBP. I currently have a MBA which I have been happy with (other than the battery life). The battery life on the MBA is around 4hrs. If I'm doing photo editing and Final Cut Pro, web browsing, run parallels machine when needed, other misc low level tasks. what do you think of these specs? i5 2.9 (I figure for $100 this gives me a little more than the lowest level proc. I convinced myself out of the i7 due to other opinions. 512G HD (I decided it would be good to get a larger HD so I don't have to carry an external, plus the speed on the 2015 SSD is great! 8GB - I'm sort of teetering on the 16GB upgrade, but I'm thinking I probably don't need it. Although, a lot of people have said this is one you can't go back on, so if you think you'll use it get it. Just not sure if 16GB is worth the 200.00 I guess my biggest concern is making sure I have enough for the VMs and the final cut. I was hoping for a retina MBA announcement, but it didn't happen. I figure this is the next best thing.
