After a few weeks, i’m still pondering over which Mac to get. It’s going to be my first Apple product and i’m really excited (and anxious) about it.
I really like the experience of using Iphone 5, which ironically, is my first Iphone. I like the close integration of Apple’s ecosystem and i believe having a Mac will increase my productivity and workflow.
The retina screen will be good to have, but i’m still not exactly sure if that’s a game changing factor in itself. The cost of having a retina screen is definitely a big issue, and i believe many people are also sitting on the fence on this issue. By marketing terms, the early adopters of this technology have to fork out more, and in this case, a substantial amount to enjoy the full glory of retina display.
The issue is further complicated by the imminent release of the new IMac, which i have taken a keen interest in. In fact, the reason why i’m holding out is because i’m leaning towards the purchase of the 21.5inch imac. There are only 4 choices, but the more i think about it, the more indecisive i become.
- MacBook Air 13inch
- MacBook Pro Retina 13inch
- MacBook Pro Retina 15inch
- IMac 21.5inch
It’s a choice i’m going to make eventually.
