MBA/MBP Retina pricing

Been telling my friends that the pricing delta between the 2 is totally blurring. I was determined to but a MacBook Air as I believe it's the best all around laptop right now. I've seen them boot huge PSDs lightning quick.

And every time I see a decent deal on a MBA, I think about it, then I realize that they're non retina.

Then I just saw this:
Refurbished 13.3-inch MacBook Pro 2.4GHz Dual-core Intel i5 with Retina Display $999 CAD

Dang. Pricing coming down and it's def not the currency.

This has to be the best deal out there now. Retina? ya. Add 4G of ram and maybe 128G of HD and this is perfect.

That's American and it won't ship to Canada. But yes, it is a good price.

I originally was looking to buy a new MacBook Air but after spending an hour at the Apple Store and considering the price and comparing the features I decided to opt for the MacBook Pro. The MacBook Pro has a shorter battery life, is slightly heavier and thicker. The difference in price isn't a factor either. The retinal display is a compelling feature for me.

I still find my MBA the best to travel overseas with - light, small and still able to process my photos on Photoshop.
My MBP is too heavy to travel with, especially with my Nikon D800 and lens as hand luggage.
