Hi all! So I am a high school student going into 11th grade. I live in Louisiana, so for the rest of today (8/3/13) I get an additional 4% off of taxes, not huge but nice. My question is, should I get the Macbook Air with Haswell today or wait for the Retina Macbook Pro Haswell Refresh? Macbook Pro is as an option but I heard it might not refresh at all because Apple wants to promote Retina. My uses of this laptop: Programming in Xcode (iOS apps) Taking notes in class Web Design Running an online business off of it. (Ebay, which is mainly web browsing) Occasional photo editing I INTEND to play Sims 3 and record gameplay. Then I will do editing. So I would LIKE to be able to edit video. Not worth $1000 to me. Here is the other problem. I don't want to pay more than necessary. The rMBP is out of the picture if the price is to high. Right now I can get one for like $1400. If it's more than $1500 after refresh, goodbye Retina. Besides, when I bought my first laptop in 2008 (2 years of grass cutting...), I bought it for the touchscreen which was a waste. I'd hate to buy into another screen gimmick, plus I know if I get a Retina I will never be able to look at another screen again. What are other sales that I could buy from? Black Friday? Right now my 13" 128SSD, i7, 8gb RAM Air costs $1279. Plus a free $100 gift card. Should I just go for it? Also is the i7 worth $140? Thanks guys! Glad to finally join the MacRumors family!
