    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 i will :) The retina screen is gorgeous isn't it, My 2011 Pro is in really nice condition so i should get a decent price for that, I ordered the Apple Superdrive and of course Apple care too.....Have you got an external drive?

    Not yet, I've been looking at a 1TB hard drive with a Thunderbolt connection.

    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 ordered it with 256GB but i might change it tomorrow to 512GB, My old one has 320GB and has always been enough but of course its less, I'm going to check how much free space i have on here.

    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!
