    Hi, i'm a computer science student, I use computer mostly for programming, watching HD movies, downloading, casual gaming, and other common stuff. I've been wanting to buy a new laptop since 2 years ago, but i didn't because last year MBP upgrade was just a minor upgrade. I actually didn't think about MBA at all before, but now i'm considering whether i need a MBP or not. I also don't want more than 13" laptop. I need your advice whether i should wait for the rumored MBA, or wait for a new 13" rMBP.

    Thanks

    If you can wait, then wait.

    Since we don't know what the MBA and MBP lines will be yet, and the rumor of the MBA line coming out sooner then later. I'd say wait until then to see if the configuration is what you're expecting.

    One thing to consider, the MBA will be slower and less powerful then the MBP line and if the rumors are correct the 12" MBA may not have any ports, is that something you can live with?
