Before the Retina macbook pro was announced, people were thinking that the macbook pro would get a redesign (it did but as a separate product). Now I'm wondering, I'm using an early 2011 13" 2,3 ghz macbook pro to make music in Logic. And most of the times, musicprojects are loading forever and CPU overloads are very common. I checked some benchmarks and it shows that the cheaper 15" macbook pro 2012 (not retina) has double the benchmark results vs my macbook. From the beginning I was just thinking to upgrade to more ram or and SSD, but since it's the CPU meter that always goes "red" in Logic, I figure it might be the CPU that is the real problem. So anyway: I'm not interested in the retina macbook. Don't need the retina display, don't care if it's thinner and I can put in an SSD in the original one if I want to. Do you think that they will keep the original line side by side with the retina for a long time or eventually just go for the retina? It seems quite early to upgrade my mac (only had it for 1 year, I used to have my PC for 4-5 year before upgrade) do you think they will come with any major update soon? So far they have only been doing silent updates to the CPU.
