    Wanted to get some more feedback before I finally went out and purchased my first rMBP! I mentioned in my previous threads I'll be using it for intensive graphic design work, web development, photo editing, multiple tab browsing, and video streaming. Would appreciate it if you can let me know whether this is the right model for me!

    13.3-inch MacBook Pro 2.6GHz Dual-core Intel i5 with Retina Display
    Originally released October 2013
    13.3-inch (diagonal) Retina display; 2560-by-1600 resolution at 227 pixels per inch
    16GB of 1600MHz DDR3L SDRAM
    512GB Flash Storage
    720p FaceTime HD camera
    Intel Iris Graphics
    $1800 CAD (TAX INCLUDED)

    This will be the last time I ask for any more help, I promise :) Just want to make sure it's the right purchase as it will be my first rMBP! Thanks in advance.

    If you're doing graphics design and photo editing, you might want to consider a 15" rMBP. The additional real estate will make it easier on your eyes.

    I definitely considered the 15", but when I went in store it was just not the right size for me. I also move around quite a bit from place to place. So the portability of the 13" is ideal for me.
