    Hey Everyone,

    So I spilled water on my 2012 MacBook Pro 15" and apple is asking $750+ tax to repair. I don't think spending that kind of money to repair it is logical...at least not to me. So I wanted to hear your guys' take on it. Should I get it repaired or save the $750 and put it toward a newer MacBook? I was thinking about pairing a new 2015 MacBook with a iPad. That would roughly workout to the price of a new MacBook Pro. I only need it for medschool related tasks and maybe some light photoshop and video editing. Thanks in advance everyone!

    Personally I don't like the new MacBook. The keyboard just doesn't work for me.

    I'd opt for a 13" rMBP and an iPad if you need one.

    That would most definately be the best option. I was considering the air first, but for a couple hundred more, the 13" pro gives the most bang for the buck. Thanks man
