    I went into a Lifebytes(Apple reseller) store to compare the MBA and rMBP screen and weight differences. When difference in weight between the two seems almost imperceptible while there is nearly a half pound of difference. The screen differences are not as much as I would have thought but definitely the retina is great. 20 min in the store is just not enough time. No decision yet on which to get. The Apple refurb price is helping me lean towards the rMBP and I will not be waiting for Haswell.

    Really? It's now 10 months since they last refreshed the MacPros.

    Some ppl have complained the HD4000 not enough muscle to push all those retina pixels.

    don't forget that the 13" rmbp even has a smaller footprint than the MBA.

    this is part of the reason why to me the bigger choice is between the 11 mba and the 15" mbp/rmbp
