    This one's a bit tricky. An argument can be made that if you don't intent to listen to or rip CDs or watch and rip DVDs then the MacBook Air should suffice. After owning my Macbook for the past 4 years, I've rarely watched DVDs or listened to and ripped CDs so I would more than likely get the MacBook Air on my next Mac-related purchase.

    I'd say the retina wins. I agree about rarely using a DVD drive though.

    Since my next purchase whenever that is would be my first MacBook I am inclined to go with just the MacBook 13" 500GB which would be fine for my needs.

    The model you reference is more than sufficient, in my opinion...

    I'd love an MacBook Air but I need more power and storage than the Air provides. I don't deal with graphics enough to need a retina display.

    For what I mentioned I want to use it for when I started the thread about starting to look it would be plenty for me and a side by side comparrison between the MacBook vs Retina while yes there is a difference but just not for my needs as a secondary computer.

    I agree...

    When I got my first Mac I got the Air for the portability. Nothing beats it for being thing and light. Unfortunately, it doesn't have enough space for much, so I went to the MBP with a 1TB hard drive. I don't need retina, since I don't see the difference.
