Pulled the trigger on the updated 13" retina pro. 2.9 i5, 512 ssd, 16gb ram, with company discount at $1880. Now I am second guessing myself. The computer will be used for Adobe programs by my wife, mostly indesign. But it will also be used for After Effects. Our current computer is a 13" mid 2013 air with 8gb ram and 1.3ghz processor. I love the size of the 13 inch, and feel that buying a model that hasn't been updated in ages would be a bad move, but understand the quad core is much faster. Maybe we'd be better off buying a cheaper model, for example the 2.7 i5 256 ssd with 8gb ram for only 1400, or maybe just upgrade the ram to 16 for 180$ for a total of 1580 incl discount. How much does the 8 to 16 gb ram upgrade matter for Adobe after effects? Maybe I should buy the cheaper 13" and sell it when the new ("thinner and lighter") 15" comes out.. Decisions! What do you guys think. Glad about the 2 week return policy.
