Hey guys, i bought a macbook pro about 6 months ago and it was pretty troublesome from trackpad freezing to usb ports faulty, so i gave it back and i got a refund. I need a new macbook pro and i need to know if the 15 inch retina/non retina is more reliable than a 13 inch? i will be doing video editing and audio production so what will be best for me?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.5)

    The 15" based on your application requirements and the superior performance parameters and the larger display.

    Here we get into personal preferences.  I suggest that you look at the two side by side.  If you can, bring two USB drives with visual data that you are familiar with and use that as a source for comparison.

     

    I would recommend the 15" anti-glare with the High Resolution option.  But look at that first with a 'normal' display.  I would avoid the glossy.  Most professional photographers mention that the anti-glare has superior color accuracy.

     

    Again I have inserted a touch of my personal bias.

    A point that I forgot yo mention is that the retina MBP must be ordered with the required RAM and SSD ahead of time.  The RAM cannot be altered and there are limited SSD increase options available at this time.

     

    The standard MBP can be altered both RAM and HDD or SSD at a later date at reasonable costs.

     

    Ciao.
