For Coding? Well a text editor is not so hardware demanding as 3D animations ;) Neither is Photoshop.

If you can afford it get a MacBook Pro Retina Display.

Amen to that. I’m still in awe of the screen, 12 months on from getting it. And it’s a powerful beast!! which is why I use it hooked up to a Thunderbolt display when designing (because it has bags of memory etc..), and then by itself when moving to code.

Given your further explanation of your situation, I’d say the retina Macbook Pro was made for you ;)

Air – light, cold, enough for web development and light graphic design works, cheaper.
Pro – heavy, hot, good for power user. Recommended to have SSD, huge performance boost. My pro was dead few months ago, now I am using Air, Its an improvement. All come down to your personal usage and daily routine.

Hey,
Air is cooler (in terms of temperature :) ) then rMBP?

Pro is working wonders here. 15” is the perfect amount of screen real-estate if you’re mobile.

My MBP 15 has never got hot. But I use it on a solid 3” travertine table, which must dissipate the heat lol.

Google travertine.

Never use a rMBP before, but Air is colder than my previous MBP.

My rMBP late 2013, gets hot, specially when watching streams on the web.
