I have a Retina Macbook pro with 256GB SSD HD, my main computer, using at work and home. I have about $1000 best buy points to spend, and looking for a second laptop. I am thinking the non retina Macbook pro will be a good second unit that I can use mainly at the house, I like the idea of getting the entry level non retina model and slowly building it over time as needed. It will mainly be docked and used with an external monitor, and occasionally for projects around the house. Main appeal is the larger hard drive and the DVD/RW drive and the ability to upgrade it over time as needed, although I don't ever see myself needing more than 1TB HD and 8Gb of RAM. Should I look at other options?
