Hi everyone. I'm upgrading my early 2010 13" Macbook Pro (2.4 GHz, 4GB RAM, 500GB storage, recently replaced hard drive) later this summer to a retina Macbook Pro. My current model choice is the 2.6 GHz with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of flash storage. I'm considering upgrading either my processor or my memory, but I really can't afford to do both (honestly, I'm not sure if I want to pay to upgrade either) even though I'm getting education pricing on the model. My typical usage is web browsing on pretty image intensive websites such as tumblr, and my computer is usually on and in use for like 12 hours a day. I'm a broadcast production student, so I do frequently use Final Cut Pro and Adobe programs like Photoshop, InDesign, and Audition. My friend uses these same programs on his rMBP with the mid-range specs and his programs run effortlessly. With my current model, FCP and my Adobe programs run pretty okay, they can just be a tad sluggish at times. Web surfing/app opening can be a nightmare on this model, and sometimes I have to wait patiently for things to load all the way. I figured the model I selected will no matter what be a vast improvement upon my current model, so I'm tempted to just leave it at the specs I already selected, but I want to know what you guys think. Should I bump up my RAM to 16GB? Should I save myself some money and keep the substantial upgrade that 8GB is already getting me? What the heck does the processor actually do and should I even bother messing around with that?
