I've followed the 13" rMBP threads closely since I really wanted to buy one. The forum has helped me tremendously in understanding the cost of this machine compared to the specs and the reasons why it is overpriced for what it is. I find it interesting that, instead of the 13" rMBP, in most cases the 13" Air is being recommended and NOT the 13" cMBP. Why is this? I want to replace my 2008 15" MBP (my wife has abducted it and never stops using it- when I complained she told me to go buy a new one for myself so she can have the old one ) The primary use of the new one will be all aspects of management of my small business: accounting (Quickbooks), presentation writing and delivery for customers (Keynote), social media management, email, general internet use, etc. This will not be for games or heavy photos, videos etc. For those things I have an iPad 3 and iMac. It will be in the messenger bag everyday to work, on the plane, etc, along with the iPad. Portability is a concern but I am not worried too much about 1/2 pound. It will be used everyday sometimes for a couple of hours at a stretch. Will I be left behind soon by not jumping on the retina bandwagon now? I won't upgrade this computer again for 4 years. I cannot justify/afford the 15" retina and feel that its specs are way too much for my usage anyway. So, based on all this info should I consider 13" cMBP, 13" Air or still consider the 13" retina display since the specs of the machine will certainly handle my "pro" haha needs? Am I the target audience for the 13"rMBP being hardly a "pro" user but wanting a nice display in a portable machine? Thanks for the collective wisdom of the forum.
