Hello people of MacRumors! A little background first. I am 15 years old, in high school, and dirt poor. Over the past few months I have been heavily into web and graphic design. I plan on getting a job and saving up for a Mac. What I want to know which would be better for my needs? On a daily basis with what I do, I plan on using: Spotify Photoshop Illustrator Xcode Eclipse Chrome/Safari iTunes, and a lot of that at the same time. I have thought about getting an iMac or Mac Mini, but I don't have a desk and would like to take a laptop to school to work on stuff. Would a top of the line Macbook Air or Macbook Pro with Retina Display be better for me? My main worries are: Macbook Air: I'm afraid the screen will be too small for me, and I'm scared of the Photoshop flickering issue. I currently have 17inch Windows 8 computer (now you see why I want a Mac), and the screen size is pushing it a little. I'm scared I'll regret getting an Air. Macbook Pro: When I went to Apple and played with Photoshop on it, I realized it wasn't Retina optimized when it comes to the artboard. Everything is smaller than normal. What do you think the best decision for me would me? I'll be buying a Magic Mouse with either on of these, and maybe a Thunderbolt Display down the road if I really need it. Thanks for the help everybody!
