At this point, for those liking the 13" size, would there be much reason not to abandon the MBP for the Air? Near as I can tell, about the only "improvement" Apple made to the 13" MBPwhen one might have expected a whole lot moreis removal of the optical drive (or at least I see no mention of it in the specs). Other than that, what of any significance? Even their tarted up 15" MBP retina display seems to boast at best a slight evolutionary improvement over previous models. Meanwhile, in direct comparison with all 13" models the Air comes out largely even, in some respects better. The base 13" MBP has only a marginally faster processor over the maxed out Air (although option of 2.9GHz if willing to pay more). Other than that, the displays are roughly equivalent, and by some measures the Air's better. If opting for the most possible ram in either, at 8GB, and a decent 256GB SSD in storage, the Air is even $100 less expensive than the Pro. Not to mention being substantially less heavy, and arguably far more stylish. I have no idea what Apple is thinking, but appears in no hurry to make the 13" MBP all it might be, when it could have been incredible. For those having waited until now, perhaps one's patience best met in what the new MacBook Air now offers.
