My wife and I decided to treat ourselves to a new laptop as an anniversary/birthday present. It's a 13" pro with the retina display and flash drive for storage. The display is awesome and with flash for storage it's really fast to boot up and runs cooler. It also has 7.5hrs battery life and a 2hr charge time. I'm getting used to the trackpad and it will take some getting used to. We are strictly using this as a portable workstation and plan to run one of the minis with parallel or virtual to have a windows XP option available. That way we can ditch the flakey pc we use for occasional Windows software use. Never had a laptop before and I must say it's nice to be able to sit back in the easy chair and surf GTTalk!
