Please help me make a decision. I need a new computer (the old one is a 3 years old Sony Vayo. We have such a big choice to choose from nowadays and that's why it makes me so difficult to decide. I start with college very soon (graphic design).My first plans were buying with the keynote back in june. I was hoping for a decent desktop, so a new imac was my first choice. Since Apple had not yet released a new one, i am in the market for a decent macbook pro because 24th september we begin. So, first question: Can i turn a windows version of CS6 master collection on a macbook (by using bootcamp or something else)? If this would be possible, are there any drawbacks by doing this or is this just the same thing like you would using it on a mac? I am very acquainted to windows 7, i really love it but like everybody knows, the designmarket prefers a mac. 2nd question: Would you prefer a retina macbook pro over a regular macbook pro? I know you have a better resolution and SSD. But, it seems to be impossible to upgrade, and i also love using a dvd drive. 3th question: Is the difference between 2.3 and 2.6 that big when you are using files of 40mb in photoshop? The gap between those two macbooks is more than 400euro. 4th question: Like everybody else here, i know that Apple is turning in other ways, notthing is what it was before. Years ago, apple was the standard for designers, but something keep saying me, why not trying this with windows? Dell and Asus seem to have beautiful devices for the design market to. But, i am affraid that in college everything will be on macs. Also, later when i will work in this sector, everywhere where i should go, they will have mac. Possibilities: 1)Macbook Pro 2012 2.3, 4gb RAM, 500gb with high resolution antiglare screen, upgraded with a Crucial ssd 256gb (or 512) and 8gb ram. 1799euro 2)Macbook Pro 2012 2.6, 8gb RAM, 750gb with high resolution antiglare screen, upgraded with a Crucial ssd 256gb (or 512) and 8gb ram. 2299euro Later i want to upgrade them with 16gb RAM if this would be necessary. 3)Macbook Pro Retina 2012 2.3, 8gb ram, 256ssd. 2299euro Glare should be 25% less than the regular macbooks with glossy screen. Like i mentioned, this macbook isn't upgradeable at all. I like the resolution and this must be a great macbook, but i am a little bit affraid that i will need 16gb RAM later. Also the score of 1/10 for repairing makes me doubt. I will miss the dvd drive to, but there is a solution for this problem. 4) WINDOWS??? Asus u500 may be. Thank you all for your time!
