Ugh-Sorry, I know- Another thread about which MacBook I should buy. I understand if you want to ignore it and jump over to another thread. I appreciate any who thoughtfully comment though. Circs: I have a 2009 white unibody MacBook. I suffered through years of spinning beach balls and re-boots until I upgraded a few months back to an SSD and more RAM. Now it is working much better. However, it is aging, the battery is getting hot and loses charge fast, and I've saved up enough cash I feel comfortable spending a few G's. I am a recreational user. I mostly web surf, email, and occasionally have some word processing and such to do for work. I do not do much at all with any resource-suckers such as Aperture, Final Cut, Handbrake, GarageBand, etc. I do frequently have up to 10 web pages up simultaneously, and I do some playing around in iPhoto (no- haven't made the fearful leap to Photos yet) to manage and backup the pix we take on our iPhones. I use external HDDs for backing up, cloning, and storing my iPhotos and iTunes libraries. I also use the CD/DVD drive about 4x/year for work. I'm also interested in future-proofing to some extent, I do not want to be stuck buying a machine that will leave me in a couple years wishing I had something more modern (If I don't get USB-C now, will I regret it later?). Like most people, my current peripherals are standard USB-A. Things I am definitely interested in: The new force-touch pad, retina screen, smooth performance. So, here are my thoughts upon which I am seeking input: 1. Keep my 2009 MacBook Unibody until it gives up the ghost; 2. The new 2015 MacBook; 3. 2015 MacBook Pro (open to either 13 or 15 inch) 4. Wait until WWDC next week to see what is offered / announced 5. Wait until some future can't-live-without chip.
