How important is next gen screen technology? Retina display makes text easier to read and pictures more vibrant.

Do you want force touch integrated into your track pad? Force touch is a new haptic technology which makes clicking on your touchpad more intuitive with deep presses, and the ability to "double click" anywhere on the trackpad.

What price range are you thinking of?

The Macbook is a new device from Apple that doesn't compromise on portability, screen clarity, or new features like force touch on the trackpad. It's pricey, but it's a marvel in engineering if not perfect for the power user. That said, the design makes some compromises with ports--that is, it barely has ANY! It also has a new charger system. Expect to spend some money on peripherals if you are looking to use a mice, or any other device without bluetooth.
