Hello folks, Its been a dog's age since I was active on this forum, glad to see its still around. I have a mid-2010 MBP 15" which has been a faithful companion and great all-around laptop. OS is out of date (10.6.8) which has caused some issues in recent years. Debated upgrading the RAM, new battery and upgrading the OS rather than buying a new computer (which I may still do), but am now leaning towards getting an iMac. (Not so infrequent kernal panics and the generally dismal quality of new replacement batteries on the market are my biggest pushes). So I should be excited, right? Except I'm so out of the loop I was disappointed to see that not only have they ditched USB ports on the new MBPs, there isn't even an optical drive on the iMacs anymore?? Add to that the fact that Adobe CS has gone to a monthly subscription (I'm worried I won't be able to port my vintage CS5 over - no CDs... and maybe issues with 64-bit vs 32-bit?). I know I'm singing a boring and out-of-date song here, but any advice?
