I realize what I am going to ask is a personal preference but just curious what you would do in my shoes. I feel like a little kid with a gift card in a toy store. So iPad or macbook pro? I started working for a company a few months ago that offers discounts on apple products as my company is a business partner. So I figured I would get myself an iPad 3 next month as I don't own an iPad. Well I didnt realize that my company also offers an additional discount, a huge one, for one time only to encourage apple use. I can get an iPad 3 for roughly 150 dollars (before tax) or a Macbook pro for around 1200. Here's the thing... last summer I purchased a Macbook Pro 15 in. 2.3 GHZ with anti-glare screen (figures). So I am not in the need of a laptop however when they announced the new snazzy retina screen, well...I'm impressed. I kind of feel like since I get this one time large discount I should get the biggest bang for my buck (yes, a little greedy I know). I still get discounts so I can pick up an iPad a little later this year but it will be for more than the 150. I might be able to sell my current Macbook and from looking online it appears to be worth around 1300 (if those websites are correct). I may have 2 people interested in buying it but well...these people are friends and I never sold a computer to anyone before. I do some freelance graphic design/photography work on the side so that is why I bought the anti-glare screen. Not sure if the retina would have a lot of glare (I heard that issue has been addressed). It seems like what I have now has more GHZ? Would I be downgrading in that dept? Sorry Im not real savvy when it comes to specs. So I am not sure if using up my discount for a Macbook Pro is worth the trouble if I am not gaining much besides the screen. Thoughts?
