Hello all! I already own a mid 2014 15' rMBP maxed out specs which is always at home plugged in to a thunderbolt display, and sometimes I take it to work. I don't think the 15' rMBP is a heavy computer. but I don't think is portable enough for the kind of work that I do. 4 days ago I purchased a base mode 2015 13' macbook air for almost $700 @ best buy, it had a $200 discount plus I had a couple of coupons. I was thinking of making the mba my work computer since its really light and its portability its amazing. The mba is a great computer but the only thing I couldn't get used to was the display... oh boy... Ive been so used to retina display for the last couple of years that going back to a non-retina display was a no. even thought battery life is amazing on the mba and performance was great, I decided to return it. I went to best buy to finally return the computer and thinking that the new MacBooks were sold out, I asked the lady at the counter if she had any idea when they will get the new macbook back in stock, to my surprise, she replied that she had 1 SG 1.1 256gb in stock, so I decided to exchange the mba for the retina macbook. Luckily the manager was able to reapply my movers coupon and $50 education coupon. Total came up to $1119 before tax. I haven't had this computer for more than a couple of hours but so far I can tell that its going to work out for what I do when I'm out and about (when I'm home I have the 15' rmpb hooked up to a tb display). I am already used to force touch but am still getting used to the keyboard. Also I'm loving the retina display on such a portable device. Will report back once I've extensively used this computer for about a week. Thanks for reading.
