    Ok Im deciding on a mac book pro either the 13" which is £999 or 15" which is like another 500 but is it worth paying an extra 500 for 2 inches does it make a big difference if that is the case then why not buy a retina for and extra 300 on top of that? can anyone tell me if its a big difference between the 13" model and 15" model

    Thanks

    Paddy.

    'is it worth paying an extra £500 for 2 inches' read that out loud to yourself!

    Macbook pro 13", then buy a monitor, and you'll be set, I'm using the 13" right now, but I also can vouch for the iMac, both great computers!

    all name brand pc's are outragously overpriced just because the name sells the computer, take alienware for example, some of their computers cost upwards to $3K-$7K, when in the real world, you could build a personal, outstanding computer for around $1200-$1500, whenever I finally obtain a job I play on building me a Gaming/Graphics Pc

    Depends on what's inside, the graphics card for most people. Or how many core processors. I hear gaming on PC with a great graphics card etc is second to none!

    Trolling? Just stop...There was absolutely no sarcasm and smart remarks in my post. I asked why not choose a Windows PC and I don't get an answer I get you calling me a troll. Thanks man! (Btw, that. Was sarcasm.)
