Im planing to buy the new MacBook with retina. Many have told me to buy a PC with windows instead of a Mac. They says its overpriced and the specs are to low, compared with other computers on the same price. I love windows, but I found it kind of unstable. I'm sure there's many good and stabile windows computers out there, but I'm a bit tired of sucky windows computer that lags,also games. But when the new retina MacBook had those insane specs, even though its very expensive, wanted me to buy it. I'm doing a bit of gaming, and I'm well known with the grapich card it has, processor, ram and everything. But I also want to do some schoolwork. I just want to do a good investment.At the moment I have a Thosiba with 2.4 intel i3 presses or, 4 gigs ram, intel hd grapich 3000. I know it *****, but I hadn't really much money and my old was broke . So my question is, how many years will a Mac last with a bit of gaming, normal web-browsing, not installing a lot of ****** software and nice treatment? Without starting to get low battery-life, starting to slow down and overheat. And also some tips to make it last longer.
Also people on YouTube have recommended the MacBook Pro, instead of the one with retina, because of its high price. Is that something I should consider?
And one more thing, is the parallels with windows 7 any good?
P.S. I'm not a noob, I'm well known with specs and stuff like that, and all my nerdy friends is getting freaked out because I'm buying a MacBook at this point. I also got to like apple more, after having av fabulous experience with the IPad 3
