I am wanting to buy a Macbook - I will be editing YouTube videos, photo editing, I have adobe premier elements most recent which I use for these - But the main reason I am investing in a Mac is for music production - I want to be able to record my guitar & vocals - But also buy beats off the net and make music like Peaches, Nine Inch Nails etc...With my vocals on top - I am not a computer person and have no idea what specs laptop I need, I'm not sure about the retina as I don't think I need all that flash graphic stuff! This is an investment to me, and I want it to last as much as possible - I need the music to be as good quality a possible, without any problems creating it! I'm in New Zealand, being to many stores and people in the store don't seem to know! Also called apple but they weren't very helpful. Please help!
