Hi all. A friend of mine recently won $10,000 (he netted $7k after taxes and whatnot) on a $5 scratch ticket that I sold him. He'd been without a computer for about 6 months (he had a 2008ish white MacBook whose HDD died, and he gave up on it), so we went to a local Apple store and got an entry level 15" cMBP (he got AppleCare for it and a 160 GB iPod Classic), as well as a nylon sleeve case thing. Anyway, this whole thing inspired me to start this thread. I have a 2007 Santa Rosa MacBook (same one as in sig) and I've been ready for something fresh and new for a long time now. With that said, I'm eyeing two machines: • Hi-Res 1680 x 1050 cMBP 15" (Anti-Glare Matte vs Glossy doesn't matter) • Moderately spec'd 15" rMBP (Haswell or not) I'm well aware of the limited upgradeability of the rMBP line, whereas with any cMBP it's the total opposite. My purpose for this theoretical new machine would be for media creation (occasionally) as well as media consumption. Before you say "oh if that's all you need then get a MacBook Air" I also want to do some light gaming that the Intel HD GPUs really won't support to my liking. Also, I don't want components that'll outdate too quickly, like with my 2001 iBook (which became obsolete a mere months after I got it) and now my SR MacBook. I thank you all in advance for any advice you can give me as to which machine I should get.
