The non-retina MBP is using the Ivy Bridge processor. If you're ok with that than you might consider a 2012 retina MBP. Since you are a more casual user like me, you might be happy with a 13" retina...

That idea definitely has some merit to it. I guess it depends on how much time you're willing to spend on sorting and sifting through a large library. And the issue of kids purchasing stuff and...

Bingo! That's what I ended up doing. So for anyone else who has this problem, it's not like you're up-the-creek-without-a-paddle. You just gotta download to your device first and then transfer it.

Mambo - Your view of Apple may soften a bit when you see how much value a late 2011 macbook still has if you decide to sell it. Coming from the PC world I'm shocked that there is such a huge market...

I think they are about 2 or 3 ounces heavier. Like 15 oz vs 12 oz. for iPad 2. To me it's noticeable but not extreme. The Surface Pro 2 is 2.5 lbs. That would be fairly described as MUCH HEAVIER.

Yes, upon startup we each see our separate avatars requiring passwords. Because of that I was hoping that iTunes would be a non-issue.

Developers will make apps backwards compatible with iOS 6 for a long time. Most apps will still work with iOS 5 and it's been almost a year since that was discontinued. And if you make copies of your...

Your needs sound similar to mine. Mostly text document creation, some photography, and not big into gaming. I think you'd fall in love with a 13" Retina MacBook. If you look at text a lot, the...

Do ringtones/alerts follow a different policy?

I love how you can re-download songs from iTunes now as many times as you want. This is very handy if you didn't make a backup copy and you need to restore your device. However, I noticed that...

If you buy a Mac now, You will probably have to pay. Maybe $20. Nobody knows for sure though because nothing is announced. It won't be Microsoft expensive though.

Normally, I'd agree with what you. Mac resale stays high because the older models still retain alot of cachet with potential buyers. But as Steve Jobs once said "This changes everything". The Retina...

If there is a Best Buy by you the 256gb 13" Retina MBP is $1520 which is a good deal if you don't mind the 2.5 I5 processor vs the 2.6 from Apple. Amazon has them for $1520 too with no tax.

The next Haswell CPU Retina MacBook Pro is going to have a huge improvement in the GPU and will probably have better battery life. I don't think Haswell is necessary unless you are gaming.

I don't mean to insult your intelligence, but after you deleted the video's did you go and delete them from the trash can? To free up space, it's really a two step process.
