I've searched through the forums for a little bit and couldn't find a lot of resolution for my particular situation. Anyway, I'm looking to upgrade my ancient white iMac (late 2006 model with 2.16 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and upgraded 3GB 667 DDR2 SDRAM) and need some advice on which laptop to get. My budget is about $1300-$1400 as I'm going off to college and need a computer for school and a computer than I can connect a second display too for at home. I'm looking at either the MacBook Air (the most expensive model) or the MacBook Pro with Retina Display (the least expensive $1299 model). I'll be doing a bit of gaming, not super heavy, and will be using Final Cut Pro X to edit my tech and audio videos, and just everyday basic tasks. What's the best for me? Mostly worried about speed and power. Thanks!
