I'm looking to replace my early 2011 13" MBP. A few days ago I ordered a refurbished 13" rMBP and it arrived to my home yesterday. I will be returning it because within 10 minutes of use image retention appeared, it was laggy when scrolling web pages, and when I exit a program the desktop menu disappears and then reappears within a few seconds, also the screen still looks like 1280x800 at best for retina setting, while the scaled resolutions did not look as good as the best for retina mode. I also read somewhere that the Intel HD4000 barely has enough power to drive the retina display. Yesterday night I ordered a 2012 Refurbished 13" MBA with the following specs: 1. i7 2.0 GHz 2. 8 GB Memory 3. 256 SSD I have a few questions on the MBA. 1. I have a full version of Windows 7 and my job requires the use of Internet Explorer (for MS active script and a stable version of Java). I would like to know how VMware or Parallels 8 runs like on the MBA or should I used bootcamp? 2. I prefer more screen space. I know that my MBP has better color, but at the expense of screen space. How good is the 13" MBA screen? 3. Did anyone ordered a refurbished MBA before and how was your experience with the refurbished MBA?
