    Hi, I have a crucial doubt about these two ultrabooks.
    I can get these two configurations for the same price of 1150 euros with student discount:

    - MacBook Retina 13''
    I5, 128GB SSD, 8 GB ram

    - MacBook Air 13''
    I5, 256 GB SSD, 8 GB ram

    Now, I study Computer Science and I love retina display, but i think the 128gb of storage limit me, now for a probably use of Windows 8 and visual studio on it, and maybe in the future talking about VM's.
    It's also true that i don't store games, music nor videos. I'll use my macbook only for professional and studying usage, like programming, mail, web.

    So, what you'll chose if you were me? Retina display all life, better processor but less battery power and portability, or ultra portability and no concerns about storage usage and VM's ?

    And also, what I will sell better in a future?

    Thanks, it is very important for me :)
