    Default MacBook Pro: Now or Later?
    Hello All,

    I am in the market for a new laptop and it will most likely be an apple. The last laptop I had only lasted me about a good year and a half (toshiba) so I'm hoping that these are a bit more durable.

    I am in a tight spot when it comes to the model that is right for me. I will mostly be using the laptop for schoolwork and the normal Internet browsing. I am not sure if I should first wait to see what Apple will be coming out with next on June 11th and after that, if I should go with the retina or the normal one. I will be buying the 13 inch for sure.

    Can anyone chime in on what would be good for me as far as Ram, Ghz, Gb......

    Any one of your opinions and suggestions will be very much appreciated.

    Thanks

    I'd say get a standard 13" MacBook Pro. The Retina is unnecessary for what you are doing.

    As with any laptop, spend as much as you can. Difficult to upgrade afterwards.

    If you can afford it, get the higher model MacBook Pro 13" for $1,499.00:

    13-inch: 2.9GHz
    2.9GHz dual-core Intel Core i7
    Turbo Boost up to 3.6GHz
    8GB 1600MHz memory
    750GB 5400-rpm hard drive
    Intel HD Graphics 4000
    Built-in battery (7 hours)
    Until the next time… And if I help you out, give me a "Thanks!" Thanks!
