Has anyone returned their rMBP for a cheaper model?
Im sure someone has.
Funny that you are asking this when your UserName is HighEndMac?
I'm sure someones has but once you use this Retina screen, it's really hard to go back.
If by cheaper model you mean a cheaper version of the RMBP, I am considering that and will do it if the Engadget battery life claims hold true (they claim that the 2.3 GHz version has 20% better battery life than the 2.6 GHz version).
I havent but thinking of doing so, I am not able to justify the extra premium I am paying for just 256 GB space. I am totally confused at the moment.
Do you need the extra space?
not right now, but i am afraid i might need it in the future and then I donot want to regret my decision. My total data is around 100 GB and I am planning to install windows 7 in the rMBP and ofcourse I would need space for installing the mac apps.
I would prefer a NAS solution if i'll go with the base model but I am not able to find something which can be used for backup and as a place to dump all my music and photos
Yeah, if you have music, pictures, etc. you should put those on an external HDD. If you really think you might run out of space, then get the larger SSD. I'm not sure what you're talking about not being able to find a place to backup and put music and photos.
I bought the base model with upgraded RAM. My biggest gripe was the small SSD. So I've just invested in a 'bargain' NAS set-up.
I bought a 2nd Gen Airport Extreme off eBay for £45 and a 1TB External Hard drive for £63. So £108 in and I'm set.
Something is totally up with their testing. There is no real-world basis for there being even close to a 20% difference. Maybe 2%. Maybe.
Thats not a bad idea, which hard drive did you go for?
I meant a solution that can backup and work as a NAS unlike the time capsule which i suppose only works as a backup device.
I am returning an 8gig tomorrow for a 16 gig (which I also have).
No, but I did the opposite!
I returned a 2.6/8/512 and got a 2.7/16/512 instead
Let me know if this is 100% true if you find out. That kinda sucks....
yeah, well highend...sometimes....lol
I feel you, same boat here....
ThunderBolt? USB 3.0? USB 2.0?
You noticed that much of a difference?
YES! Nice, some hope. If i may ask, what do you do? or is this more recreational.
This is hope.....
Exactly,my macbook pro retina is like my baby now.I cant sleep without saying "Good night",kiss her and make sure everything is fine.If anybody wants to give their macbook pro retina I am pretty sure that they are not tech-freaks because I would never give this computer back.
Rmbp 4? Thought we were on the first gen..
Don't forget they had only one 2.3 model and one 2.6 model for testing. Not a very large sample to draw any conclusions from, for a variety of reasons
Ya i want to know the deal with this...
I bought a Hitachi 1TB USB 3.0 portable hard drive:http://www.amazon.co.uk/Hitachi-Touro-Mobile-External-Drive/dp/B006DZKEAW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1342962204&sr=8-1
and a 2nd gen Airport Extreme. I also have a 500gb Hard drive that i've got plugged in via a USB hub. I'm using that for time machine.
