I would get $35 in reward certificates due to having Elite Plus. Main uses: Adobe Creative Suite, some games including Cities Skylines and Rocket League, internet browsing/media consumption, and Duet Display. I currently have a 13" 2011 Macbook Pro. It can handle Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 just fine. It won't be able handle the newest version so I'd like to upgrade soon, plus my computer is getting pretty old and has a battery with a Replace Soon condition. I realize this new model is a little overpriced still, but the build quality and OS is what is keeping me interested in Apple. I like that I have an Apple store close to me as well. I'm doing a lot of research on Windows laptops at that price point and many of them are tempting because of their power, however many do NOT have great color accuracy, keyboard, or durability.
