I know there are probably a hundred such threads floating around lately, but I'm a bit stuck on which MacBook to buy I know no one has really used the new rMB, so it's a bit difficult to say too, but I thought I'd get everyone's opinions regardless. Here's what I'll be using my laptop for: + Regular web usage, e-mail etc. The usual. I should note that I tend to have around 10-15 tabs open at any given time thanks to work. + Photoshop work - nothing too crazy, mainly just resizing/batch processing photos, but I will require Photoshop everyday and expect to have multiple images open at any given time. + iMovie - I won't be using this very regularly, maybe around once a month. This will be to edit raw videos (which I expect to be around 20ish minutes each) down to 5-10 minutes. + Watching movies, TV shows etc. I was initially very taken with the new rMB because (I know, I'm shallow) it's so pretty and I'd love a gold MacBook + the idea of having the "latest" laptop However, the more I think about it, the more I'm gravitating towards the rMBP (which was what I was going to buy anyway before the new MB was announced) because the specs seem much better. Portability isn't a *huge* issue for me - I do carry my laptop to and from work, but I am okay with the size/weight of the rMBP so I'll obviously be okay with the MBA and rMB. To provide a little context, I'm coming from an early 2011 MacBook Pro (2.3 GHz i5 and 4 GB memory) and I've been using it as is for the past four years - I haven't upgraded the hardware at all *and* I'm still running Snow Leopard, believe it or not So I know any laptop I get will be a fairly decent upgrade, but I still need help making a decision! I don't expect to upgrade for another four years at least, so I also want something that'll hold up well over time. Any thoughts? I am mostly trying to make a decision between the rMB and the rMBP because I would like the retina screen and new trackpad. So I'm trying to figure out if the rMB will be adequate for my needs, or I should pay the extra $200 (because I'd want 256GB storage) for the rMBP. (However, if anyone really thinks the MBA is the better option for me, I'm willing to hear them out too.) Thanks!
