This is my first Mac purchase, I have grown tired of windows BS. I just purchased the Haswell 2013 Air. 13" 1.7ghz i7 8gb ram 256gb storage for $1480. Should I stick with that, or purchase the baseline 13" 256gb rMBP for $1500? I almost feel like I will still get a more powerful computer (even though its an Air) than the rMBP, just purely because it has the updated 5000 integrated GPU. I am buying this as my portable college computer (going back again). I plan on writing papers, browsing the web, watching movies, photo editing (minor stuff), and if I do any video editing, it will be purely as a novelty. I would also like to be able to play a few games like borderlands 2, knowing these devices are not designed for that. The retina would be awesome, but isn't a deal breaker for me. What would you do if you had $1500 and wanted your first macbook?
