Hi, wondering if anyone can offer me some help. I'm considering buying a MacBook Pro with retine display. In April 2013 I bought a Sony Vaio, which has the following spec... 2.6 dual core, I5 8 gigs ram AMD Raedon 7550m graphics Windows 8 256 HDD (not SSD) Windows 8 does my nut in and the track pad on the laptop is prone to just freezing. As I've become addicted to my iPad I'm considering trying a mac. However, even though my Sony is nearly 2 years old the current macs appear equal in spec. Have I read this correctly? Seems to me that buying one right now wouldn't actually be an update. In fact the Iris appears less powerful than my AMD. Is this correct? My use is likely to be Blizzard games (Wow, D3, Starcraft etc.), word documents, video and photo editing. How will the mac preform with this? Thanks for any and all advice that you can offer. Best wishes.
