Hey, so I have decided to buy a new Mac and I am looking at the Retina display. I like the SSD and the screen obviously. I am a marketing major and do a lot of design work as well so its seems ideal. I am targeting the higher-end retina, for 2,599. I like the 8GB memory, and the 512GB SSD, plus the slightly better processor...but that price seems a little steep to me. If I opted to go for the base retina, would the small SSD be too small? it would save me 600 bucks though. I really want a lightweight but powerful computer that can last me 4-6 years. please help, I was just approved for the payment plan through online and would like to order this asap as it will take 3-4 weeks to arrive. so i basically want to know is the price worth it? Could i survive but prosper with the base retina? and in other words I have some frozen cold feet right now and need to be re-assure to avoid incredible buyers remorse, and to be told that the investment I am about to make will be worth while!
