    This question has probably been asked 10 million times already but as I saw - each time from a different perspective.

    My case:

    I have a 13" MacBook Pro (2010) 2.4 GHz with 8 GB memory and 128 GB SSD. I use it for work (virtualized my office Windows in Parallels - standard issue - cannot differ) in the corporate network, for at home (browsing, work, etc.) and for movies when I travel (quite a bit).

    I love the size and weight and bought it at that time in order to be able to upgrade which I did (HD to SSD, 4 GB to 8 GB).

    All other computer heavy tasks (downloading, rar unpacking, iPhoto, iMovie, MKV to MP4) I do with my living room based Mac Mini server 2011 - now with one SSD and 8 GB, soon with twin SSD and 16 GB men.

    My iMac of 2009 is more or less obsolete.

    What I want is a powerful laptop to replace the macbook pro and the iMac for day-to-day use as given above.

    My initial preference would be a MBA 2012 (2.0 i7,8 GB, 256 GB flash) and extend it at home with a T-bolt Diplay but I would like to receive your considerations: MBA 13" or MBP 13" or MBP 15" - current models or last years' models. Retina MBP is off the scale so to speak.

    Thanks in advance and sorry if I asked the obvious question AGAIN....

    Thanks,
    Michel:)
