Ever since WWDC 2012, I've craved the Retina. Two problems. One, I have a fully functional Early-2011 13", zippy and responsive with the SSDs and RAM I've fed her. The second problem is that I don't have any money. I've never been one to chase technology, but putzing around with my sister's Retina refurb and the ones in the store, only fan the flames of lust. I'm meticulous when it comes to upgrading, as I'm wont to upgrade once every 6 years -- use your machine 'til it dies mentality. Upgrading a three year old machine seems a little frivolous to me, especially one that is so peppy. The Powerbook G4 from which I upgraded was not friends with many websites. Getting around the money situation. My parents are educators (discount). I've looked into winning one. A cursory Google search unspools a wealth of spam sites for that end. Anyway, this is nothing but idle musings. I'll stand by my older, less sexy but still great machine. I like people who show allegiance to their aging machines and help the environment by only upgrading when need be. But, 220 dpi. Sigh.
