My MacBook Pro (13", 2012, non-Retina) is starting to show its age a little, so I'm thinking of replacing it. I haven't added an SSD or RAM to it yet, but for a while now I've been wanting a lighter computer with better battery life to replace it. I also want to use the computer for some gaming (though, rarely). That leaves me with 2 options: the retina MacBook, and the MacBook Air. So far, I'm leaning towards the 11.6" MacBook Air, but I'm wondering what you guys think. Here is a list of my uses of my current MacBook Pro: • Gaming (PSX, GBA emulators, Call of Duty) • Coding with Eclipse • Writing essays/making presentations • Web browsing • iTunes I'm not sure the retina MacBook Pro is the best option because it still seems like a pretty hefty computer. I plan on waiting for the next generation MacBook and MacBook Air as well, and this computer would become my primary machine. I'm really interested in the super-portable design on the MacBook, but I'm not sure if I can pull off using it as my primary machine. Ports are not an issue as I can simply buy extra adapters (which I don't mind; eBay is a great place for getting things like this), so my issue comes more with performance. Thank you!
