I was waiting to see whether rMBP will get the haswell but it didnt happen. So now I want to buy a computer - Air or Retina - both 13 inch. I would like to use it for: - reading - writing - movies - carrying it around - photography (my hobby) I would give my Air an i7 (is it worth?), 256 ssd. It would cost me about 150$ less than the rMBP early 2013 - prices from Poland . Is the retina screen worht the price or should I look mainly for the better battery life on the new Air? I was also thinking to forget the i7 and stick with the i5 and add iPad Mini to the collection but mainly I want a new laptop. Is rMBP more powerful?
