Hey, I've been offered a mean discount on a MBP retina so I'm keen to upgrade from my mid-2010 MBP 13". It's the 2.6GHz core 2 duo, 320GB HDD, 4GB RAM model. I've got a few offers for it (about $1000) which makes the price of the retina even less in my eyes. I do some student film editing on FCP as well as watching lots of video and listening to music. I will be traveling with it a fair bit too. Just wanting some opinions on whether this is a good upgrade for my uses and I'm keen to hear from some people who have bought and used the retina. Also opinions on whether to purchase Applecare as I have seen a few problems with the retina and its SSD.
