Hey guys, would like to get your expert advise.. I'm torn between getting a rMBP (maybe base model only) and a Late 2011 17" MBP. Price is almost the same, and the 17" still is still covered by warranty and can be extended with Apple Care. rMBP Pros: 1) New technology 2) Faster (with the SSD and faster RAM) 3) Fantastic screen (but I plan to use it at 1920x1200 most of the time) 4) New design / lightweight 5) USB 3 / HDMI Cons: 1) Flash CS6 not yet supported 2) Laggy UI (for some that I've seen - hit and miss here) 17" MBP Pros: 1) Upgradeable (will definitely upgrade to 16gb RAM and swap the optical drive to an SSD) 2) Native 1920x1200 resolution 3) No need to wait for Retina app support 4) More ports Cons: 1) Yesterday's technology / design 2) Heavy Will use either for: iOS development, mobile / web development, UI design. Planning to keep for 2-3 years as my main machine. I mostly work at home and I have an 11" maxed out mid 2012 MBA hooked to a Dell U2713hm monitor. I would like to get a second mac to be my desktop replacement while the Air can be used for travel and light work. If the rMBP wins, I'll just wait for the Haswell update as I'm not really in a hurry to get one as of yet. Any thoughts? Any inputs would be greatly appreciated.
