    I don't do anything processor intensive, I like a portable device, ports isn't really a big issue, I would be watching movies, editing word documents, sending emails, browsing the web etc

    The only hiccup I noticed with the new Macbook was Safari in Yosemite. It can lag and choke up really bad on this computer. But now I have El Capitan and it's smooth as butter. I do notice it taking a second or two longer to load certain things (as opposed to my rMB late-2012) but it's not something that I even care about.

    it seems like MacBook Air is much more portable? But its screen is the short coming.

    Not more portable but more powerful. I had one and couldn't stand the screen. I really wanted something portable so I returned it and have the MacBook on order. For what I do it'll be just fine.

    I actually returned that one before I even opened it because I needed the money for something else. I have another one coming again now that I got back in the black but I'm still thinking about the base MacBook Air 11.6 because it's on sale for $799. Either one will do what I need. Just not sure the rMB is worth the extra funds for a better charging port (IMO) and much better screen.

    I really want a rMB for the overall size and screen, but worried it won't be powerful enough. It's either rMB or rMBP for me. The Air would probably have plenty of power, but I want the higher res screen. Also, the rMB speakers sound great. Better than my current MBP.

    The power would be fine for me. I'm not doing anything real intensive. Mine is just related to money. I'll probably stick with the rMB for the screen and that I really hate the Mag Safe charger. I also want the portability, so it's worth it over the MBP to me.

    I have to do some basic web design using a virtual CSS program. My current MBP kind of stutters on it a bit. (It's a late 2011). That's my only hesitation with going with the MacBook.

    From what I've heard and read, the Core M in the MacBook is somewhere between an i3 and i5 in performance. Depending on the task, you may be able to pull it off.
