So the apple store dropped my 2007 macbook and has offered to give me the newest 13" macbook at 1499 for free as it is the most comparable to what I have currently specs-wise. They also said if I want to upgrade I could pay the difference. So basically I have a 1499 credit for a mac. I'll be using this mostly for normal generic stuff, web browsing, watching movies, etc. I'll also be doing some photo and video editing. Trying to decide on the following things: Should I upgrade to a retina display, should I upgrade to SSD vs standard hard drive. Should I go to a 15" instead, or see if they would let me get a maxed out air up to 1499 for free. My wife will be using this primarily. She likes to do the photo/video editing and will be using it for school. Have to make a decision today. Any thoughts/input would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
