I posted a similar thread a few weeks ago but would like to get a second opinion now that people have had a chance to play around with and review the rMBP. I have two configurations and would like to know what you recommend. Macbook Air "13 >256SSD >8GB RAM >1440 x 900 >2.0 i7 dual core >~ 1600 USD Macbook Pro Retina "15 >256SSD >8GB RAM >2880 x 1800 >2.3 i7 quad core >~ 2000 USD With the spec bump in the Air from upgrades the two machines have similar specs and make them a little bit more equal. After seeing them in store and comparing for a while I am leaning towards the Retina. The weigh factor is negligible and won't affect my decision. I am going to college for CompSci and expect to do coding, writing, playing with PS and browsing the web. I don't game much BTW.
