Hiya, I am having some major dramas in getting the retina MBP and I'm looking at other options for my needs. I am getting a new laptop mainly so I can edit 1080p video footage (from my go pro HD 2) - my current Sony Vaio can't even play 1080p lol. Otherwise it will just be used for Web design and browsing web / watching Movies etc. Also I'd like to be able to play Diablo 3 if possible.. Anyway - I pre-ordered a Retina MBP (base model) partly for the spec and partly for the look, and that screen! But I have just seen a refurb Feb 11 MBP for sale on the apple site (spec below) for £800 ($1200) cheaper. Refurbished MacBook Pro 2.0GHz quad-core Intel i7 Originally released February 2011 15.4-inch (diagonal) LED-backlit Hi-Res antiglare widescreen display, 1680-by-1050 resolution 4GB (2 x 2GB) of 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM 500GB Serial ATA @ 5400 rpm 8x double-layer SuperDrive (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW) Intel HD Graphics 3000 and AMD Radeon HD 6490M (256MB) Will I be able to do all I want to do with this? (I suspect the GPU may be an issue for the Diablo side) Would I notice the difference between the two machines (realistically)? Could there be any lower options in the new range that would meet my needs? (I would even consider an Air if it would do what I wanted). Thanks in advance, Garf.
