Is a retina macbook really so great?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hello world,
my macbook the 2007 model, is really gettin old and i think it's time for a new macbook.
the retina macbooks are pretty awesome but unbelievable expensive. even if i put the price tag aside the hdd is a little bit small. i need at least 320 gb. the lack of an optical drive and ethernet port is ok.
so my question is. i am a student, don't play any games at all, would a macbook air fit my needs or is the new macbook  so great that i should spent the extra few bucks?

Not a hard drive, solid state storage. But yes! A MacBook Air would probably work out just fine for you.

 

You can't miss what you don't have, and you won't have a retina display on it, so…
