Retina macbook pro - Apple and it's constant dilemma. The retina display is incredible. I think we all agree on that. I personally cant wait to get one in a month when i come back to USA. BUT. As usual, i find it really hard to choose. Should i go with the baseline model and risk slow gameplay on modern games and slow performance a few months after buying it. Or should i spend almost $3k on a laptop that doesn't even have upgradeable RAM. heck you can't even service your own battery. I really dont know, so i'm asking you guys for advice Heres my situation: - I'm going to college this year (computer engineering) so a laptop will be my permanent companion. - i do some mild gaming but i prefer my xbox so gaming to me is only a matter of satisfaction that my laptop is powerful enough. - the most important thing to me is OS speed and smoothness. It kills me when my PC freezes or slows down. That's why i'm going for a mac. They are supposedly well built. - i dont really care about storage capacity or optical drives. A 32 gigs USB is for like 25$ and a 1 TB usb 3.0 is for less than 150$. I dont see where the storage problem will arise. So yeah, tell me what you guys think and: Do u really think the .3 ghz difference will really make a difference in speed? Say you have Xcode and a few other apps open, will the difference really make a difference? I'm probably buying a retina display mac because i loved the iPhone and iPad retina upgrade. Do u think otherwise?
