I recall you purchased yours late last year. Have you been updating to the latest OS and whatnot? I've noticed a dramatic decrease in my MBA's performance since keeping up with the OS changes / updates, especially with Safari, and am wondering whether your MBP experienced the same as well.
Also, weird question: do you use your laptop in bed, or are you more of a set it on a table while sitting on a chair type of guy?

I briefly considered a 13" Air, but with the MBP specs and the minor weight difference between the two, it wasn't much of a contest.
I would highly consider the 13 MBP Retina, too, but the lack of a dedicated GPU really bugs me for some reason (even though all I do is listen to music, surf the web, and watch movies
