    I am now transitioning from windows to an apple laptop because I like the design and layout of it much more. This is what I want to use it for:
    Xcode
    Design Tech Apps
    Everyday stuff, but a little more heavy on the word processing end.
    My Budget is 1.2K

    Here is the interesting bit: Under normal circumstances, I would try to get a Macbook Air 8GB, but I have 850 dollars in my Amazon account that I would like to use, and Amazon does not offer the 8GB version. Should I get a Retina Pro or wait for the update that is happening at the end of February?
    If you have any other ideas, please post below!
    Clarification, the 1.2K includes the 850 in Amazon

    I'll never speculate on what might be in the pipeline, but as you seem to be using (or planning to use) applications heavily reliant on text (and legibility), I'd recommend the 13" Retina.
