Hello guys, I've been using Apple products since 2008. But most of them are iphones, ipads, apple tvs and recently airport extreme. Now i want to buy a laptop on which I'm planning to write codes and daily works. By the way, i hve a very strong PC. The specs are: Intel Core i7 3930K @ 4.4 MHZ | Asus Rampage IV Extreme Mainboard | Asus 690 GTX Vga Card | 16GB Gskill 4x4GB 2133 MHZ Quad Channel Ram | Corsair 2x240GB Raid 0 SSD FORCE GT | Philips D | Corsair 750W PSU | 27" DELL U2711 I was about to buy Macbook Air 13" i7, 8gb ram with 512 gb SSD. When i check the threads sometimes I feel comportable on my decision but sometimes it makes me want to buy a retina display laptop. But i really like air's shape and lightness much better than any macbook. I didn't have the chance to see the new macbook pro next to a macbook air because it's not out yet in my country. I don't think I'll need it to play games because I already have my game machine ready at home. So do you still think a macbook air is a good start and a good deal for me? Lightness and long battery life are my needs. I will definitely buy a macbook air with retina when it is out but bow i don't want to wait. I can also use my 27" Dell monitor sometimes which has a mini display port support with 2560x1440 resolution. I'm asking my question to both Pro and Air users. Thanks.
