Re: When I bought my Retina..

Not that this message is about the screen.......but......

I spent 5 minutes with a Retina 13" and bought it, as an upgrade to a 10.4 running iMac (2Ghz 2GB and 320GB hard drive.)

Well it was actually for my partner, but now she's got 8 gigs of Ram, a fast SSD and a crystal clear screen.

To tell you the truth, we were looking at the macbookAir, but this 13" macbook is so light anyway, the processor and drive much bigger, it was no contest in the end for the 15%-20% increase in price. The battery seems to last forever......I guess the hard drive in a portable is the biggest drain.

(weight of the 13" is almost nothing compared to my 15" Quad 2011).
