Hi there! so I am in the market for a new macbook pro and find myself confused. I waited for the new 2013 line to have the newest possible but find that they are less powerful by far but more expensive. Is there something I'm missing? right now im eyeing the 2012 even though it doesnt have retina display which ,though beautiful, comes on a less powerful computer 2.9GHz Dual-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3.6GHz 4GB 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM — 2x2GB 500GB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm for $1134 vs 2.8GHz Dual-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3.3GHz 4GB 1600MHz DDR3L SDRAM 128GB PCIe-based Flash Storage for $1469 the retina is 300 dollars more for less power than the 2012. That said is there something I dont know about haswell processors that makes them more powerful or faster with less gHz? I would be using the macbook for photo and video editing as well as 3d animation. any advice? is the new lineup better than the 2012 version despite having seemingly lesser specs? thanks in advance. EDIT: Additionally, I am not worried about RAM because I would buy less expensive third party RAM so ignore that the models are lacking in that respect.
