Hi everyone. I plan to buy a new macbook very soon. I am a college student who will use the laptop for research, word processing, web surfing, music, and slight photo editing. I originally thought the MB Air was best for me due to the portability and cheaper price tag. However, with a student discount and the recent price drop from Apple, I can get the MBP Retina for less than $200 more. But, I am hearing things such as ghosting, lagging, and fan noises with the Retina and feel that the MB Air is the safer choice. Any thoughts or advice? Is the Retina worth it? Is buying an Air still worth it? Thanks.
