I just noticed that you can get a refurbished 13" retina MBP now for $1269. That's a pretty significant discount from the original price. For that you get 128GB of storage, a 2.5GHz i5, 7 hours of battery life and the retina display. A 13" MBA with educational pricing is $1279 with the processor upgraded to 1.7GHz, 8GB of RAM, and ~15 hour battery life. So which is a better laptop? Note: I'm not asking about which I should buy, I already have an Air. Just curious which one people think is a better deal. If I was going to buy a new laptop right now I would probably go with the refurb rMBP just for the screen and faster processor.
