Cool. 15 or 13 inch?
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.

Do you miss the Disc drive?
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!

It is rather gorgeous :) I ordered mine with 8GB of memory, My present one had 4GB and i had it upgraded to 8GB, It seems the Retina can't be upgraded later so you need to get the right spec from the start.

And you bought it on Apple's 30 year anniversary too! Congrats.

I love my MBA--13 inch.

Yes, I had forgotten that, I'll be sad to see the old one go though, It was my very first Apple purchase.

Are you donating the old one? I was just at the Apple store today helping my boss buy her iPad air!

I helped her set it all up, she's now a happy camper!

No I'm selling it, It's worth quite a lot even though it's over two years old, Apple devices really hold their price here, It's immaculate, I have everything that it came with, Someone who can't afford a brand new one will be happy......Yes your boss will love it.
