I'm having the most difficult decision of my life and I'm still not sure whether the retina or non retina is for me... I really like the retina but however, the only thing that is bugging me is the third party applications and non retina applications. They won't look as effective on the retina especially when these apps are important to me. Can these apps be scaled? Some pictures from the net won't look effective either The non-retina MacBook pro is good but I still hate the fact that it's still the same size as previous models and not thin as the retina MacBook pro. Would people these days still use non-retina laptops or switch to retina? Portability might be a concern for me later on... If this isn't helping then im afraid that I will have a look myself at the apple store tomorrow.. Please help me decide! ---------- .
