    Does anyone know if the rMBP has a significantly better wireless range than the MacBook Air? I recently switched to using my Air at the office as I have recently sold my 2011 13in MBP after ordering the retina and have noticed quite a drop in WiFi performance.

    I have never had any issues with the wifi signal strength on the old MBP but am worried if the slightly slimmer design of the new retina models will bring a shorter range?

    I don't see why that would be the case. The antennas are generally mounted in the border of the screen, which is the same size as on other 15" MBPs.
