Although I have been an unofficial member of "Mac Rumours" for many years, I have only now signed up in order to ask this question which I hope the Mac Rumours community can help. Although owning several Apple products I.e IPhones, iPods and iPads. I have always been a Pc user. However that is about to change *drum rolls please* I have decided to purchase a Mac due to opening an Photography business and wanted a few questions to be answered before doing so. I have decided to purchase the MBP "Type R" as some would say with the spec of 2.3ghz which is the baseline model although upgrading the model from 8gb to 16gb. I am also going to University this year so would like my Mac to last the adventure I am about to go on which should last about 3-4 years. However, reading upon the views, it seems the MBP "Type R" is pretty much hated on and therefore, is considering the top spec of the normal MBP which is the same price. The question I have is non retina compatible program's such as Adobe CS5 master collection, does it really look bad on the MBP " Type R" ? And would it be wise to purchase the MBP "Type R" instead of the normal updated MBP. (I actually do not give a monkeys about the upgrading facility). Any negative feedback about the MBP "Type R" would be appreciated before my decision which would be settle by tomorrow morning. Thank you for the people who read this and an extra thank you for those able to comment and help me. . I too hope to be introduced in the "Mac OS" family.
