hi everyone. i've been a member for a while now but for some reason (probably too many email accounts), i had to register again after a forgotten password. so, hello again! hope you're all well.
short version - to retina or not to retina?
long version - i'm looking for thoughts/comments/advice from mac laptop users on whether to go retina or not.
i've got a full desktop set up with a 27"
screen in my studio, but because i travel very often and post-process while traveling, i've become very accustomed to working on my 13" laptop. and it's time to upgrade.
for about the same price, i can get a 13" macbook air or a 13" macbook pro with retina that are roughly equivalent, same i7, same solid state drive, same ram. but different graphics processors and, then, retina or no retina. weight difference seems negligible, but when you're traveling with gear even a small difference counts.
again, i'm well-accustomed to working on a screen of this size, and either new laptop i've described would be an upgrade to the hacked together and upgraded over the years machine i've been using, and i don't view this as a long term investment so i don't need to get into the fact that upgrades post-purchase aren't possible anymore, it's really just a matter of thoughts from retina users on whether retina is worth it.
so, sorry for the long read, would appreciate any thoughts or comments or advice. thanks everyone
