Nice article, @joec. Really resonates with me. I could buy a rMBP today, but I’m holding out for the Haswell updates. Holding out for retina in the Mini, too. For now, I’m fine with my iPad 3.
@joec Me too, and it may be that we are just unused to having to weigh relative benefits, since the form factor penalty is so high with retina. Before it, new or updated products seemed to be better in every measurable way.
