Hi there, I recently sold my 2010 13" C2D because it was slowly falling apart. Dying battery, few pixels gone, Optical drive failing etc. So I thought I'd get along fine with just an iPad! I'm going into my third year of university where I'm mainly using Logic, Reason, Max MSP and a bit of Pro Tools. I already have a Mac Mini which is getting a hybrid/ssd drive very soon, but I miss having the portability of a laptop more than I'd thought! an iPad just doesn't have the same experience as a Laptop. So basically, I've been reading up a lot on this, but I'd like a few little nitbits answered... 1. As far as I'm aware all DAW's will run fine on the standard i5, and the i7 gets hotter and has less battery? 2. Whats the screen actually like compared to a pro? I've never used one in person for more than about 2 minutes. 3. Aside battery, whats the real life performance difference between 2013 and 2012 models? Lastly, I've found Curry's are doing a refurb 13" rMBP for 1179 with £100 cashback, making it the same sort of price as a MBA. Whats the verdict? Sorry about the long post, thanks for any and all help!
