New MacBook Pro 15 inch Retina on the way

I decided to change my MacBook Air 11 inch (year 2010 model) for a brand new MacBook Pro 15 inch Retina display. 

Why that big jump from 11 inch to 15? Actually the time that I bought my MBA I was travelling often because of work. I was always carrying my work laptop and my personal one, so I wanted something as light as possible. Later on, iPad came and (I own now an iPad Air), and it became my travelling device. Besides that, my work profile has changed and I do not need to travel much, so a 15 inch Retina screen is great for home as my primary computer. And I was so tired so seeing pixels on my computer :)

Possibly a short review might come shortly.


  1. Cool! I recently got the 2.6GHz i7 15" Retina myself and I'm loving it. Compared to my previous 13" it's pretty huge though, even with the decreased thickness.

    Portability isn't as perfect as with the 13" or even a 11" Air, but besides of that it's a powerhouse! You definitely won't regret it!

    Best regards,

    1. Thanks. I have got the basic model as I do not need that much power. I want to use Aperture and maybe iMovie to digitalize my HD tape recordings from my video camera. I think it should be enough. Let's see. Really excited to go back again to 15 inch (last MB 15inch I owned was 6 years ago)

    2. Even with the basic model you're still way better off than with everything < 15". Also the SDD will allow a very smooth user experience with Aperture and iMovie.

      Was the one 6 years ago even a "MacBook"? I can't remember when they stopped calling them "PowerBooks". :-)

  2. Actually it was the first MacBook with Intel processor so probably the first MacBook :-) It was quite heavy back then :)
