    I'm thinking about getting a 13-inch Macbook Pro, but I can't decide if I should go for the non-Retina model with the i7 processor and 750 gb hard drive or the Retina with the i5 and 128 gb flash storage. The non-retina is obviously cheaper, but is the retina worth the extra $100 despite the lower storage space and processor? I'm a student so I can get education pricing. I'd be doing some light gaming (Minecraft is about as graphics-intensive as I'll get). Thanks for your advice.

    Retina MacBook Pro. The screen is beautiful and super fast storage. Make sure you get 8GB of memory though. It's worth the extra money.
