If you're in the market looking to buy a MacBook, which one should you buy? Apple recently announced some really cool machines with retina display no less! But lets try to make a decision here.
If you're not going to be doing much rendering or high end editing, then your best bet that can get you by will be the MacBook Air with dual core Ivy Bridge processor and 8GB of RAM. That's seriously more than enough already.
But if you're looking to play high end games like Starcraft 2 or Diablo 3 then you'll want to have some retina screen on you. You'll want the 2.3GHz 16GB RAM 256GB SSD model for $2400.
SSD storage is precious and expensive. But while you don't need a ton of space on your drive because of the fact that there are cloud storages like Dropbox, Google Drive and Skydrive, there are tons of options to choose from.
As for RAM, and additional $200 will bump you up from 8GB to 16 which is rather cheap. Memory is important because that's what helps you run your machine fast.
If you're an actual professional user who doesn't mind losing out on the optical drive (NBD) or the ethernet port (big deal), you may as well max out with the 2.7GHz 16GB RAM 768GB SSD model.
