iPhone 5 - Page 199

post #2971 of 4017
Meh. Not impressed by the specs of the 13" retina MBP for the price. I still stand by my 15" retina MBP.

Yeah, I got the air 4gb of ram and the updated processor speed. 256gb of space. It is pretty awesome, but it costed me like $2,300 or something. It would be cool to have a retina display on it, but I think once the ipads get more space on them I am going to just begin updating ipads more frequently than laptops.

the 128 gb of space on the 13" would not be enough for me, but to upgrade to 256 puts the 13" MBP retina at $2K while the 15" MBP Retina with 256 is a mere $200 more.

going from $1700 to $2200 makes sense, Apple is genious.

How much data are you guys with the iPhone 5 using on average now that you are on LTE? Any of you checking this as you go?

And you can get the 15" retina MBP for $2000 with education discount nod[1].gif

I got a five gig corporate plan. I won't break 1 gig.

Gomey - the 128 is a little constricting, but for media storage all you need is a separate 1TB USB HD. An extra $100 and you can store everything that your heart desires. Or, a few pornos.

i have an external hard drive, the only thing is iPhoto and iTunes is where I use up all of that storage. I could easily put a few movies from iTunes on there (assuming it's possible), but I don't want to separate photos from iPhoto.

** use up all of the storeage on my laptop (for some reason, I can't edit posts at work)

I'm still trying to wrap my head around the fact they are releasing the 13 inch pro with a high res screen and no discrete graphic chip. For normal computing it's going to be fine, but I wonder how it will handle anything 3D intensive or even heavy Photoshop work. At this point, I think it may be worth waiting for the reviews to hit. I could be wrong, but I have a feeling this may end up being a mistake on Apple's part.

I will say that the Pro is giving you a much beefier processor, out of the box, then the Air gets. Some of that horsepower will be used to drive the additional pixels, but it's not like you won't see a nice performance boost with it. External dual screen support is a big plus too.

^^

even though I'd probably have minimal use for a graphics chip, the inclusion is one of the reasons why I think that $200 upgrade to the 15" might makes a lot of sense.

i think they're targeting the hobbyists and rich people with this one. the pro's will just go for the 15" automatically.

I agree...the retina display just makes interacting with the computer much more enjoyable. The 15" will always have the beefier options that professionals will gravitate to.
