I bought the 11" 2010 MBA redesign as soon as it came out.Well, you know the rmbp is going to be more stable. rmba at this point i think would have way to many issues.
Maybe I should have worded that differently. What I mean is if your concerns are about having a stable machine the rmbp is proven. Since the rmba doesn't even exist, yet to the public anyway its not proven. All the speculated new features of the rmba is heaps of new ground. I am sure it will be spectacular. I like taking risks on. $!1+ like this, and will be buying the rmba day one unless the 24th is rumored true in which case I'm picking up an 11".I bought the 11" 2010 MBA redesign as soon as it came out.
It worked great for 4 years and probably still works great but I sold it last year.
I also bought the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5S as soon as they came out and they worked great too.
I would not be concerned about buying one of these products ASAP.
Not really. The 13-inch rMBP is actually narrower. And there is a small difference in weight. And especially at the current price points, you get far more value with the rMBP.Is there much difference in portability at all between the current 13 inch mba and 13 inch mbp? I looked at both in a store recently and for some reason the mbp looked smaller than the mba but that might have just been an optical illusion.
The physical dimensions are a little different. The MBA is a little thinner at the front, about the same at the back. The rMBP is a little "shorter" (front to back edge, 8.62" vs. 8.94" for the MBA) but weighs a little more. I had a 13" MBA, traded for a 13" rMBP and find them physically basically interchangeable, and I say that as a non-car commuter (walk/train) who carries the laptop 5 days a week.Is there much difference in portability at all between the current 13 inch mba and 13 inch mbp?
