I'm going to buy on thursday my mac computer. My budget allows me to buy a rMBP13 (i5, 256, 8gb - the early 2013 model) or the base cMBP15 (4gb, i7, 500gb). My needs: - internet - office work (writing mainly) - photo editing (amateur) - video editing (dslr movies made by me) - youtube - movies occasionally Ideal would be a rMBP15 but it's out of my price range. My concern is will I benefit more from a bigger screen and i7 or a faster SSD drive and retina screen. I don't play games on a computer - I have a PS3 for it. Need to hear your thoughts!
