    If you can stay calm while all around you is chaos then you probably haven't understood the seriousness of the situation

    Went for the 13" again, I have that now on my older Pro and its always been enough, I have to say the 15" is very nice but a huge jump in price.

    I'm sure you'll enjoy your new 13" MacBook Pro, I bought mine last spring. MacBook Pro Retina-image-3365690395.jpg

    I don't burn DVDs or audio CDs. In fact, on my last laptop, an old IBM think pad, I only used the optical drive for watching movies.

    BTW, what storage size did you order? Currently you can get up to 1TB of internal flash storage.

    I was in a Best Buy recently and had the opportunity to compare the Retina and non-Retina versions of the Macbook Pro's. Needless to say, I was amazed that the Retina model was so much more attractive. I hadn't noticed much difference between the same models of iPad mini.

    I want the Macbook Pro 13" Retina model so bad. Good choice!
