    I was just wondering if anyone would buy a 13 inch retina macbook pro?
    I have a 15 inch retina macbook which is great as you all know but what would be the benefit of having a 13 inch retina be? it will not benefit PRO users IMHO as the small screen will not help in photography or video editing or anything for that matter. the macbook air 13 is great as a email + web browsing computer but thats about it. what do you guys think?
    Thanks in advance :)

    Some people want the most power they can get in a compact form factor. That's why there used to be a 12" Powerbook.

    For me the 13" form factor is my favorite. It fits in my backpack and I keep it with me everywhere I go.

    If I could have some of the power of the 15" Retina in such a form factor, maybe even with some weight reduction, that would be great.

    So you know the price of a computer that doesn't currently exist?
