    Long time lurker.

    Looking to get the base '13 and upgrade to 8GB of RAM (£1,079). What's everyone's opinion, is this good value for money? Looking to do normal run of the mill stuff with a bit PhotoShop thrown in.

    Really, to me, the only reservation I have is the lack of a decent resolution (as in the MacBook Air '13) display.

    Any advice is welcome, cheers!

    Thats a good deal bro. Its kinda overkill though. I recommend getting a macbook air.

    Thanks. I would like to have the flexibility so that if I were to use it for more intensive applications I can.

    Is it worth waiting on the Retina 13"?

    What does everyone make of the screen on the 13" Pro... Will Retina make a massive difference?

    While the resolution of the 13" MBP is less than the 13" MBA it is IMO a much higher quality display. I find the 2011 13" MBA to be washed out, have reduced viewing angles and the I found the higher DPI and therefore smaller text stressing for my bad eyes. I don't believe they have changed the screen for the new model.
