Hi everyone! I am planning to purchase a new laptop soon and would like to get my first MacBook Pro. I am a student so I can get the education pricing. I had my heart set on the 13" Retina base model ($1199 with discount) until I saw that the 13" non-Retina is much cheaper ($999 with discount). It looks like it is the mid-2012 model. At that price is the non-Retina a good deal or is it too outdated?
