I decided to buy a new MacBook Pro last night and ended up with the Retina Display model. I really did not care too much about the display – I was more interested in the flash storage. In the end – I found myself really surprised and impressed with the Retina screen. Going from that to my first ten iPad was like taking my contacts out – the picture much less crisp.
With each computer I buy (since the mid nineties) I name it after it’s Apple given codename. Between the speed of this computer and Time Machine – it took me longer to find the codename than to get it completely set up. So far, so good…and no water in sight.
Overall – I am glad I went for the Retina display and look forward to having it on all my devices.
