Hi everyone, I have been following this forum since well before the release of the new 2012 MBP and RMBP but this is my first post. I have been using a 2008 MBP but sold it a few months ago to plan for a new laptop. After WWDC I was confused as which model to go with but decided on the regular MBP since I like the ability to customize my computer, replace parts, and get a 750gb hard drive with the 2.6 i7. The screen was not important, at least at that time. I looked at the Retina model in store and must say it is very nice. I am afraid of the lack of CD drive, ethernet port, restrictions on changing parts, and less storage/processor for the price. I have exactly $2200 to spend, and with my student discount I went for the high end regular Pro. I'm still within my return policy and I feel like I made a bad decision. When I look at my regular Pro, it looks fine. Even better compared to the PCs we have at my house. But I have the newest iPad and can definitely tell the difference when going back and forth. I've popped in the Apple store a few times and the new Retina Pro looks amazing. I also noticed the High Res display on the regular which looks nice too. I'm hoping you guys can point me in the right direction. I only have 3 more days left to return or exchange, and I'm thinking of either exchanging for the Hi Res option or going for the Retina with an upgrade to 16gb of ram. I will not be doing any video or photo editing, my uses are very simple. This will be my only computer and I won't travel much with it, but I'll definitely have it on my desk and maybe take it out of the house once every 2 weeks or so. I will use it for basic computing such as word processing, spreadsheets, web surfing, etc. I will also use it for music storage. I have a large library of music that takes about 200gb and would like to have it with me, although I can adapt to the idea of using an external with the Retina. I will also use Logic Pro for music production, more as a hobby, not professionally. I need some help guys - should I keep my regular MBP ($2199 2.6 i7 model), go for the same model with the Hi Res display for an extra $100, or go for Retina with 16gb RAM and use an external? I know my uses are not that demanding but I'd like to have the power if I need it later. Logic Pro requires a lot of processing power, and I will be running other music creation software. Any help would be great!
