I currently have the base model February 2011 13" Macbook Pro and I'm thinking about upgrading the factory SATA drive with an SSD and possibly upgrading the RAM from 4GB to 16GB. I use this computer primarily for web design and photography and I've contemplated buying the Thunderbolt display to use along with it while at home. However, I've realized that it may be more beneficial to just sell my current Macbook Pro as it is and get the base Retina MBP with upgraded RAM. I'm still in college so I'll be using the laptop's display heavily which draws me to the Retina (especially the increase in real estate which is seriously lacking right now). What would you guys do in this situation? Upgrade my current laptop and buy the display or sell my MBP and get the Retina MBP?
