Hey, I'm getting a new laptop soon because I'm. entering university this coming september. I'm really torn between the Retina base level, maybe buying an external optical drive with it just in case, or buying a 15 inch 2.6 GHz non-retina macbook pro. With the promotional student discount they both cost the same. So which do you guys think I should get? Ps I'm going to be carrying it around a lot, and I'll be using it for gaming, and video editing and some minor music production.
