So I am about ready to go for it and get the 15" rMPB 2014 edition. However, I am concerned about a few things. 1. There are A LOT of people that post about issues with theirs on here and other forums. Screen color/tint/yellowing/hue etc. Issue with it running hot, or the SSD making noises. While I imagine 100x more people post with issues with a $500 PC and that its only really mostly people with issues posting, not those who have no problems, its still a concern when you're spending $2,000 for a computer. I have read people say that Apple used to make better quality computers than they do now. Is this true, is there a quality issue these days? 2. I am now leaning toward the 15". I have been going back and forth about whether or not to get the 13" with 16gb RAM and 256 SSD, both with the student discount. I currently have a 15" PC laptop. The difference with the student discount is about 300 or so. I am concerned about the keyboard and the palm pad space between the keyboard. It seems like a lot of space on the 15" and for me typing on my 15" PC laptop is uncomfortable after about 2 minutes. I tried some those black palm rests and they were basically worthless. Also, someone on here posted about the 15" keyboard creaking and that being quite annonying. 3. Getting it from the Apple Store vs. Adorama, MacMall, etc. I will be getting the student discount + the $100 gift card. Seems like very little saving to get it shipped to me and then have to send it back if there is any issue vs getting it right away at Apple. 4. 13" vs 15". Is it worth the difference? I will be using it to finish up law school and then in practice. I thought about just getting the base model 13" but I know that nothing is upgradeable. I also plan on doing some video editing for hobby purposes. How much of a difference will I notice with the dual core vs. quad core and also with 8gb of RAM vs 16 gb of RAM? I can always get an external monitor but part of me says that I should just get the 15" and a monitor if I want. Also does anyone here use their 15" with an external keyboard while using the laptop not an external monitor just for comfort purposes? Thanks in advance for any feedback.
