    Sorry about your MBA. I vote for another MBA but I'm biased. Love mine. Best Mac ever. The portability is seductive!

    Sorry to hear you got robbed. How did it happen and is there a chance you might get it back?

    Your post does not say what you do with your MacBook. So it's difficult for us to tell you which one to buy.

    I vote for the rMBP. I couldn't go without the retina screen again.
