I am making the final move from Windows to Mac. I always knew it would ba an expensive exercise to replace all my PC gear and move to a single device. That is why I went for the MBPR. however I am really struggling with the justification of a $3000 purchase. I do have Apple computers (wife has a 27 inch iMac, I have a work supplied MBA). However my personal machines have always been Windows based machines. How long can I expect to get from a MBPR? MY USAGE IS LIGHT GAMING (BF3, Diablo 3 - happy with gaming on medium settings) some video editing (Home movies) Web browsing Photo editing (Lightroom & Photoshop) What would the expected resell value be after 2 - 3 years? I am looking to go with the top of the line (stock) MBPR.
