I am currently debating on which Mac to get, either Pro or Air? I'm leaning towards the Pro mostly because of the power but I'm not sure if I need it for college. I have about 2000 bucks to spend but I'm probably going to get it configured. I'm leaning toward the 13" inch MBP 2.6 GHz with the Retina mostly because it does have the SSD and better display as compared to if I upgraded the 15" regular MBP. Is 2.6 Ghz of power enough? My Samsung laptop is only 2.4 and I think it works fine. Do I need to upgrade? I'm probably upgrading the storage from 256 SSD to 512 SSD; is this necessary/a waste of money? I usually carry everything on a flash drive so I might not need to. I probably with also buy the USB SuperDrive because it probably I might still use CD and DVD for like transportation. But is this really necessary? I'm kind of saying no mostly because right now I'm not really using DVD or CD because I can just use my flash drive. As for college, I'm pursuing a medical track and the first 4 years I only need 4 courses in science. I'm also planning to minor in Arts (not graphic) but like classical art studies. I'll probably have to attend graduate school so this laptop needs to last about +6 years? probably only 5 though. I need your 2 cents! THANKS!!!
