Hmm! Had mentally prepared myself for looking for a MBA 13 (8 and 128) for my first Mac. Then yesterday I decided to stop in at a BestBuy to see if I could look at a MBA side-by-side with the new MacBook. Couldn't; this BestBuy didn't have the new MacBook. However they had a MBA sitting next to a rMBP with 8 and 128. And for only $100 more (at the moment) that would net me a retina display. Think the MacBook is more than $100 more although it does have a 257 SSD. Thinking maybe the rMBP might be the way to go. Comments?
