Hello all, Just wanted to let you know that I got my first ever MBP on Friday. I am a photographer (hobby) and I was looking for a good laptop for photo editing 4 year ago. I considered Mac, but it was so super expensive. I decided to go for the Samsung Chronos 7 as it was the same on paper for 50% of the price. I was so disappointed - the screen, how everything works, the build quality - really not good. Now I needed the best screen possible for photo editing and I was waiting for the new MBP to come up. It did, be it with the old chip, but I still prefer to get it now and use it now for photo editing rather than waiting longer. I turned the machine on on Friday and I was shocked - it is so fast and so beautiful! Can't believe! Hope it will serve me well BTW, have some questions: 1. I want to have an external HD for all photographs, I will not store them on my MBP SSD - can you recommend? 2. Any backup solution? How does it work with apple? 3. Synchronization with my iPhone and iPad - how to properly do it and what can be synchronized? 4. Battery life - should it be always connected to the charger or I should charge only when the battery is low? 5. In the PC world, you always shot down the computer, how does it work with Mac? Should I just close the laptop without shutting it down? THANKS!
