Should I get the new MacBook Pro retina ($2500). Or a MacBook Pro with maxed out ram and 512 ssd?
Get whatever you prefer and what meets your needs. That's very much a subjective decision. No one else can decide that for you, and you're the one who will have to live with your choice.
Get the one that best suits your needs, i.e., large hard drive and optical drive for the non-retina MBP if you need storage or the optical drive.
how are we going to tell you which is best, if you don't tell us what your need is? if your main goal with the mac is to train lamas then i think you should go with the cheapest option.
That depends on how computer literate the llamas are, but the good news is that both models come with a built-in spell checker, so the OP will know it's "llamas" instead of "lamas"!
i had no idea! thank you my good man .. yeah, no spell check for my gaming rig
If you're getting a regular Macbook Pro then get the RAM and SSD aftermarket and install it yourself. You'll save a few hundred this way.
It depends.. I would definitely buy the retina if money is not an issue!
If built-in storage is a requirement, then get the MBP classic. My current 2011 machine has 16gb of ram and a 256gb Samsung SSD + 1TB Samsung HDD. The MBP-R doesn't even come close to that storage capacity yet.
I REALLY wish Apple offered the Retina display on a 'classic' chassis as an option!
A maxed out retina MBP is the biggest waste of money.
You might as well give me the difference in money between the base model and one that is fully decked out and I'll be your slave for the whole year and do all your chores and stuff.
After 4 days of waiting. I located one in Nashville Tn. Luckily I was heading to Cincinnati from Memphis. Just got it. They held it for me since 10 this morning. They priced match the student discount but I didn't receive ghe gift card. No worries. I'm going to go to another best buy that Durant have it and get it.
Go to the store and have a look at the MacBook Pro with Retina Display, then have a look at the non-Retina.
You will know the answer
Perhaps the trick to save money is never to look at the high pixel density one? Can't miss what you never had
Can't agree more.. Looking at the retina then the other macs.. It looks horrible. And outdated.
A whole year of slavery for a 1.5K
Sounds like you know what to get know
If you can afford it, you don't even need to think about it, Retina ALL THE WAY
that sounds like a great deal - when do you want to start?
Awesome. PM me for address.
You can start by picking up all the dog crap in the back.
