I really like the 1650x1050 anti-glare screen of the MBP. For the money you get a solid quad-core mac that is very friendly with corporate IT environments that require using Windows-centric applications. I think in a few years the higher resolutions found on rMBPs will be normal though, and then I'll need to get one of those. However, I'm living in the present. I couldn't do the 13" unless it offered a 1440x900 screen.
