Hey everyone, I have searched and searched and I still can't make a decision. I am going to buy a new MBP this week. Should I order the retina or not? My budget does not allow for a 2.6 Retina. So do I buy the 2.3 Retina or the 2.6 non-retina? My biggest concern is the hard drive space? the 2.3 only allows for 256gb where I can get the 2.6 up to 1TB? Yet, the 2.3 allows for 16gb of Ram where the 2.6 only has 8gb. I use my computer for blogging/podcasting and a lot of word processing. Occasionally I design some flyers. I also use it with a digital projector and giving presentations. Also, I store a lot of movies (currently at 90gb mostly those free digital copies that come from buying dvd/blu-rays) and music (34gb) and a lot of my family pictures (22gb) I want to future proof as much as possible. I know I can keep some of the movies and music in the cloud I just haven't deleted them from my current hard drive. thoughts? ---------- Also, I should add that I am updating from my mid-2009 MBP 2.53 Core 2 Duo with 256Gb hard drive and 8gb of ram.
