You guys have all been great giving advice, and I have just been wavering for months now between jumping on a 15-inch rMBP now or waiting to see what comes down the skyline road. I'm not sure when the Skylake chips suitable for 13-inch rMBP are rumored/expected. Well, I stuck my head back into an Apple store yesterday, and I think I'm actually preferring a 13-inch screen for my use. It was very recently upgraded, and I usually just use the machine at home in front of the TV. I use Word for work reports a few times per month, but my primary interest is email and the fastest web surfing known to mankind. The only other "resource intensive" work I do is sometimes bulk transferring and backing up of USB thumb drives and work transferring Photos when uploading from my iPhone's camera. I'm not a Gamer and I don't do very much Netflix video streaming. I do surf Youtube sometimes though. So, looking more closely at the 13-inch rMBP, I see multiple configurations available. I would probably lean toward maxing out the RAM at 16GB for an extra $200, since I think that will produce the most bang-for-the-buck results, but what do you guys think of the options of bumping the processor from the 2.9GHz i5 to the 3.1GHz i7 for $200 and the storage from 512GB to 1TB (for another $500!)? If it matters any, I've been using this same old Late-2009 White Unibody MacBook, however I upgraded the RAM and swapped out the HDD for a SSD last year. Thanks for taking a few moments to share your advice.
