    After today's disappointing Mac event, I'm thinking about selling my 2013 rMBP and getting a rMB. I don't use the 15 inch for anything but personal stuff (I have Dell Latitude for work stuff) and I've grown tired of the size. A rMB would fit in my work bag nicely

    I was hoping there would be a 13 inch rMB that would drop the price of the 12 inch but I should have known better.

    Simply Mac will trade in my rMBP for $1050 which means I'll be contributing $370 to get the smaller laptop.

    Should I just keep my MacBook Pro or do the trade?

    Thanks!

    ad blocker helps a lot with resources, and SSD/8GB of ram.

    I kept the rMBP 15. Simply Mac reneged on my locked in price because of the new laptops and I didn't want anything non retina so I stayed put.
