Hi there! so I am in the market for a new macbook pro and find myself confused. I waited for the new 2013 line to have the newest possible but find that they are less powerful by far but more expensive. Is there something I'm missing?
right now im eyeing the 2012 even though it doesnt have retina display
2.9GHz Dual-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3.6GHz
4GB 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM — 2x2GB
500GB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm
2.8GHz Dual-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3.3GHz
4GB 1600MHz DDR3L SDRAM
128GB PCIe-based Flash Storage
the retina is 300 dollars more for less power than the 2012. That said is there something I dont know about haswell processors that makes them more powerful or faster with less gHz? I would be using the macbook for photo and video editing as well as 3d animation.
any advice? is the new lineup better than the 2012 version despite having seemingly lesser specs?
thanks in advance.

I would go for the 2013 version, only to ensure my options for future OS upgrades are secured.

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.
