Hi all, I currently work as a full time Web Developer and I am going to study for my masters in computing in September. As I will be eligible for student discount, I am considering making the most of the opportunity and buying a new Mac. I currently have an early 2011 15" Macbook Pro with the Quad Core i7 2.2GHz Processor, 240GB SSD, 8GB Ram, High Res Matte Display. It's quite battered so I've just bought a replacement palmrest off eBay to improve it but am yet to fit it. I also have a current 2.5GHz Mac Mini with base spec hooked up to a Dell U2312HM screen. I am trying to decide whether to replace my Macbook Pro, Mac Mini, or neither. For the Macbook Pro, the model I am considering is the 15" Retina Macbook Pro with Quad Core i7 2.5GHz Processor, 256GB Flash, 16GB Ram. This is priced at £1428 with UK HE Discount. For the Desktop, the model I am considering is the 27" iMac with a 1TB Fusion Drive (although I would wait til the new model comes). This is currently priced at £1416 with UK HE Discount. If I were to replace my Macbook Pro and sell my current one, I would hope to get £550 for my current Macbook Pro so the upgrade will cost me approx £878. If I were to go down the desktop route, I would hope to get £380 for the Mac Mini so the upgrade will cost me approx £1036. Taking the screen out of the equation, will I see much of a difference performance wise between my current Macbook Pro and the new one? Which would you do?
