Long time lurker, first time poster. I currently own a 13" MBP. I am looking to purchase a new mac for the upcoming academic year; I have been fortunate enough to get accepted to medical school and I need a new laptop. I use my laptop for pretty much the normal basic tasks as well as the odd photo editing. I find the 13" MBP too small for my liking. I am receiving very mixed suggestions from the mac friends I have, re: retina vs. non retina. If I buy the non-retina, I am looking to get the antiglare screen. I do like the lightweight of the retina MBP, but I am very much on the fence as to which one I should pull the trigger on. If you give me your suggestion, that would be fantastic! Thanks very much for your help.
