I'd definitely consider it. I personally think the Retina mac laptops pure helium. Can't upgrade the hard drive, can't upgrade the RAM, cost $3500 for what I'd consider a minimum computer. I have one of the first MBP Unibodies and I just upgraded the RAM and drive to a SSD.
My next body is going to be a 1D (notice I didn't say X), hopefully with a lot of pixels.
what hard drive did you use? I have a late 2010 15"unibody MBP, been thinking of upgrading the whole machine or just upgrading RAM and HD to SSD I think mine has 8GB ram already can you upgrade them to 16GB?
I have the newest 2013 refresh
2.7 ghz processor i7
I am running it in boot camp windows 8
Calibrated the screen has 99% rgb
Best display ever.
This model costs $2599 if you know someone in school then you get the education discount
