Short version of story: Got an 11" MBA months back. Great for certain things. But as it is the base 4GB 1.3Ghz 128Gb model I find it a bit underpowered for certain apps (e.g. Dragon Dictate). Have someone who will buy it off me at almost what I paid. Also my needs have changed a bit - the one I have was bought as machine for secondary use and travel. Now I plan to run my primary machine (quadcore i7 2011 MBP) in Windows for work purposes only (I need the processing power for that and I can't avoid Windows), and use the new machine as my everyday and travel machine. But what to replace the 11"with ? I'm torn between another 11" MBA but with i7 processor and bumped RAM/HD, or a 13" rMBP with i7 processor 8/16Gb RAM and 512Gb HD. On the one hand I love the portability of the 11", on the other the screen is a bit lacking for everyday use (I read off the screen and write quite a bit). On my third hand I'm thinking 'spend as little as possible' - therefore 11" Interested what folks think ! Is the 11" i7 as powerful as the rMBP i5 ? i7 ?
