Okay I haven't signed onto this forum for a long while but as I plan to get a new Macbook maybe around the end of this month I thought I'd pop on to try and see if any of you could help me decide some things. Apologies if this is a bit long, I'll try not ramble. I currently have a White Macbook I bought back in 2010 (I think) which has been my first mac and definitely one of the best things to have spent my money on. It has been slowly starting to act up a bit lately (on and off) which kills me, because I love it. At the moment though, myself and my family all have some of the most up to date iPhones and iPads (my parents use) and thought as I have a decent new job I may aswell splash out on a new laptop as it feels a good time. I've always been a big fan of Apple products, I'm just not very "techy" when it comes to talking/understanding about processors, RAM etc. I have basic ideas about it but not enough to feel confidant when getting the right laptop. So that brings me here.. When I knew I was going to be getting a new laptop I started doing a bit of research to see whats available now (I don't usually keep upto date with the new Apple products if I don't need them or haven't the money). For awhile I was caught up between the new 13Inch Retina Macbook Pro and the new 11Inch Macbook (2015). Which by the looks of things a lot of people are haha.. But After going through reviews etc online I think the winner was obviously the Macbook Pro for it's over all performance aswell as other reasons. I think one of the main reasons I was even contemplating the 11Inch Macbook was because it just looks AMAZING, especially in Space Grey. I am seeing a bit more clearly now and am almost certain I'll be going for the reliable Macbook Pro. When getting my new laptop I would like to continue using certain programs I've always been using or maybe even some new programs... eg. Adobe Photoshop, Premiere Pro, After Effects, Flash, maybe Maya or Z Brush or other film related programs as I work in that kind of thing. I also like to keep music and photos and photo/video editing so I'm really wanting the best I can get at the moment. Okay so heres where it gets a tad confusing an I need help with... On the apple site the highest spec 13Inch Macbook Pro has 8GB Memory, 512GB storage and the Intel Corei5 Processor for 2,049 which sounds good to me. But then I see each of these three have the option to be configured to higher specs which would be even more similar to the 15Inch model (which I don't want that screen size) for example the 13Inch 8GB Memory can be brought up to 16GB, the 512GB storage can be put up to 1TB and the Processor can be brought up from a Corei5 to a Corei7. So I guess I'm just wondering would anyone here recommend me getting any of these configured the the higher specs? And if so which ones? Any idea what the price for each of these to be brought up? and if I was to get any of these configured would it have any negative effects on the smaller 13Inch model (battery or anything) as it may not be built as well as the 15 Inch for any extras such as these? Would very much appreciate if anyone could answer any of my crazy questions. I'm just wanting a laptop thats fast, good storage and will last me a while! Also if ordering from Apples online store how long would it take to get it if its not going to be configured and then how long if some things are configured? Thanks!
