Hi there, I am currently using my pre-unibody c2d peryn mbp with 4gb of ram. I am in need of a new computer for accounting masters and stuff... So, i saw the new retina display and all, it's nice but I hate glossy screens. I have never used them and just spending 10 minutes at the apple store, it's annoying me like crazy, I can't stand to see my hands writing or my face eating popcorn on the black bars of a movie. I am about the buy the non retina model with AG with 4gb of ram and add myself a crucial 256gb ssd and maybe more ram later. I never use more than 3gb right now with Lion but might buy a 8gb for cheap. BUT I feel half stupid not to buy the retina display model since it might be the future and it will cost me almost the same with the ssd upgrade and ram I plan on doing...maybe $200 less...I feel like I am missing something..that in the long run I will be pissed @ myself for not taking the retina..but if only they could make one with AG screen..the current AG is not ISP but my dell monitor at home is ISP and I will connect it there and use my current mbp as a tv server. So yeah, i really need a new computer but I don't know what to do. I hate this choice..worst ever.
