Hello, Few months ago I have started to glance away from PCs to Mac/MacBooks. My interest grew cause of advertised built quality of MacBooks and maybe the fact that they don't degrade in two years the same way an Asus/Dell brand laptops do (the build quality is flimsy and degrades fast to the point that all my laptops started breaking down from casual wear and tear). Also I have been interested in OS X and the way community praises it for stability and performance. So I am considering to buy MacBook Pro Retina 15". I had few questions in mind for Mac community: 1) Maybe someone could tell their PC to Mac transition story (or Windows to OS X) ? I am no stranger to linux/unix based OS, although I am a little baffled of what one is entitled when purchasing MacBook e.g. (free OS updates ?) 2) I have browsed through Buyers guide and while it states that it is based on rumors and what not the advice is to buy model in mind with caution as it is nearing the end of its life-cycle. Should I wait for a newer better model or it does not matter that much ? Exact model I want to get is (ME294) 3) Maybe someone who has ME294 model could give first hand experience he/she had with it ? Thank you.
