I know there are similar threads, sorry about that. As you can see I am new and I'm a 17 year old student. I've been looking into buying a 15 inch MBP for awhile. I've been waiting to see for the 2012 model before buying one. However, I am still stuck and left clueless on which one I should buy. This is for personal everyday use I really like the retina, however, my biggest concern is that most applications that I want to install won't look as effective on the retina. These includes google chrome and photoshop cs5 (shhh, but Im using the non genuine version so therefore it cannot be updated for retina, as I will get caught if I update anything) The thing is, do I really need retina??? I'm not sure. I'm a person who browses on the Internet everyday, goes on Internet social games, YouTube, emailing, photoshopping sometimes (for fun) As a 17 year old, I don't really mind wasting a lot of money on a MBPS because I have the money for it already. Im going to college next year and I might need to bring it along at times as well Please help! Need advice ASAP ---------- ..
