I've been planning to buy a Macbook Pro when they were updated since last year, but now I'm not sure which to get. (I don't want an Air for various reasons.) I would easily choose a 13-inch Retina laptop were it available, but it isn't... do you think there's much chance of a 13-inch version coming in August? There seem to be rumors of that. I'd probably wait until August if I felt it was likely, but wouldn't otherwise. If I get one of the currently-released model, I'm trying to decide between the Retina 15-inch and the 13-inch. I really like the new display and increased thinness of the 15-inch (and other stuff, like the graphics card, would be occasionally useful) but I'm going to be carrying it around, so I'm reluctant to give up the smaller size of the 13-inch. If I did get the 13-inch, I would upgrade the memory and put a SSD in it, although I'm not sure if the lower- or higher-end model would be best to start with. I might try to get by with a 128gb drive plus external storage, as the $270 upgrade to 256gb seems like a lot (and from what I've read here, installing your own on newer Macs can be unreliable). Most of the stuff I'm using it for doesn't need much power - writing, internet browsing, watching movies, some Photoshop, working on external 24" screen when necessary, etc. - but I'd like to be able to do a lot of this at the same time without having stuff slow down. I also don't plan to buy another computer for at least 4 years, possibly more. Any advice? I'm not sure what to do... I guess another option would be to sell whatever I get now in 1-2 years and replace it with a Retina 13" when they're available, but I usually don't do that and I'm not sure how much money I would lose. I do get an educational discount.
