My daughter will be starting college next September, but she already knows she wants a 13in MBP. I'm insisting that she gets the non-retina model because of it's features Apple stripped out of the retina model, mainly the super drive, and the ethernet port. I know from my son's college experience he needed a wired ethernet port because not all of the buildings were wireless, and some professors distributed materials via CD's. With the retina model you always have to carry adapters and an external super drive. Enough background, now the question. Should I buy it now or wait to see what Apple's next generation will be? My concern is that Apple will drop the non-retina model completely, leaving no choice but to buy the extra adapters and external super drive for a retina model. If Apple doesn't drop it, what more could they really do to improve it, faster processor, bigger HD, more RAM? Would that be worth waiting for? I seriously doubt they would add a retina display to a fully equipped model because they could have done that this last time around. I know no one can predict what Apple will do in the future, but I was wondering if anyone else has the same gut feel about the future on the fully equipped MBP?
