For my needs, the rMB would be perfect. I am typing on a 2011 11" MBA now and it has served me well minus the atrocious battery life (lucky to get 2 hrs off the charger). However, an entry level new MBP with that rumored OLED bar above the keyboard would be cool haha. As well as the possible need for ports as I am thinking about taking up light photography as a hobby. I know that I could always by the apple adapter as I am thinking of running an external monitor when it is docked on my desk. So is anyone holding out for the new MBP's instead of going for the rMB? Also do you think the rMB might drop in price or would that not matter is it is a different line? I hate the waiting game btw.
