Hi MR, I'm in my senior year of high school right now, getting ready to enter college in Fall of 2016. It seems like a long time away, but wow does time go fast. I've been using a Mac for the last 5 years, I've loved it and now the time has come where I need a Laptop in the coming year for my internship, coming up this summer, and for my studies. I'm going to be pursuing a Bachelors in Computer Science, something I've always wanted to do since I was 11 or 12. Enough Backstory, here comes my question and I'm open to advice anymore has. I'm looking to spend about ~$2,500 on a college laptop. I've worked the last 2 years, and I feel this would be an worthwhile investment since the laptop can still be used after college. Now I'm strongly considering a spec'd out rMBP. 512gb SSD, 16GB ram. Would this be good enough for college? or should I go over to the windows side and get a beefy windows laptop for $2,500. When would be the right time to buy? I have the money in my account now since I've been working the last 2 years. I don't need the computer until June, since that is when I start my internship. Also, I specifically chose rMBP with the upgraded graphics because I really enjoy video games and want to be able to game on the go. I'm not looking to max out very game, but I'm looking to play them well enough.
