For 4 1/2 years I have been using a Retina Macbook Pro... it has served me well. But after 4 1/2 years I was ready for something new. After the big event I immediately ordered a brand new 15 Inch Macbook Pro with the fastest CPU and video card, and a 1 TB drive and Applecare. The total for it with tax was almost $4,000.00. When I told my wife how much I spent she almost killed me... but she said if I wanted it, it was ok and that I deserve a laptop. Over the past few days I noticed she was putting together a list for the kids for Christmas and noticed the list was much smaller this year and I asked her why and she told me that my laptop order took most of the holiday money put away. That made me sad. So I have been sitting here at my desk with my 4 1/2 year old Macbook pro and realizing that besides the larger hard drive it can do everything that the new one can do that I need it to. It has lasted me 4 1/2 years and is still working fine... so I am going to keep what I have. And with two clicks I canceled my Macbook Pro order from Apple. I am sad because I like new technology but I am happy because my wife does not have to worry about the holidays anymore. I can always get one later after the holidays.
