    So i am looking to get a new rMBP. I plan on using it for app development, as i am just starting out in that, email and internet. I am looking at getting this one http://www.apple.com/shop/product/F...-22ghz-quad-core-intel-i7-with-retina-display and am curious as if its too much not enough our just right for what i wanna do. i do know i want the 15" screen and a decent size hard drive but do plan on getting a 500gb or a 1tb external for keeping my code files and the app files i will be making not sure if thats possible though anyways. Any help would be appreciated.

    Its a nice machine priced at a convenient discount, I'd much rather spend that amount then 2k+

    Its a poweful machine that should give you what you need.

    FWIW, my wife has happily programmed on a 13-in MBA for 3+ years, upgraded with an OWC 480GB SSD so she can test and evaluate her code against 100GB datasets. She has a standing offer from me that she can upgrade at any time. (We buy the system because her employer allows BYOD in place of a Asus running Linux.) She uses an external monitor sometimes, but not always.
