    My budget is 1600-1700$. I want a Mac which will be updated for the next 3-4 years. I'll be playing a few games(GTA, Assassins..) and will be using it for browsing, watching movies. What do you guys suggest?

    I have to choose between 13 inch retina MBP (1700$) and 15 inch non-retina MBP (1900$). Retina comes with only 128GB of flash memory. Though i have 2TB of external Hard Disk, will 128GB be enough? Will Intel HD 4000 play the basic games?

    If you want to play modern games, I recommend against the retina 13" (unless the games you play are few years old). The HD4000 is enough for some light gaming, but not more. That said, the 13" retina will be a snappier machine for everyday use simply because of the SSD and its also very light.
