Hi again. As of right now I have a 2012 13 inch base MacBook Pro that is upgraded to 16 GB of RAM. I am not sure if I would rather keep it and upgrade to a solid-state drive or get the 13 inch retina. I will be using a laptop every day at school for keynotes and other class activities for my students. I will also be using it for Photoshop, Illustrator and the entire CS6 suite because I am going back to school for instructional design. I need Adobe for class, but this is my go between computer (I have an iMac at home) When it is all said and done I guess I am just looking for opinions on whether or not the extra real estate enabled by the retina display is worth me paying an extra couple of hundred dollars any input would be appreciated. Please help!
