I have a 2011 mini (and 24" LED ACD) that I bought a while back after giving my 2010 MBP to my mom. My plan was to use this to get by until an awesome refresh to the MBP came out. It did. And I'm not complaining about them, but now that I'm considering possibly upgrading, I'm wondering if the rMB might fit my needs and if so, how does it compare to my current mini? As for a back story, I was looking at the new MBP and thought I could save some money and get a rMB, better battery life, and still be able to do everything I need. I play some games but don't think the rMB would cripple that, at least anything I'm currently playing on the mini. Then I thought maybe I could just save more money and just keep my setup. I'd like portability but for saving over $1k I can live with that. At least until I really need to upgrade or something really major launches.
