I LOVE apple! I bought this laptop for traveling it has been the most useful tool. At first I wasn't sure which one to buy, an air or a pro. I went into the apple store and the man who helped me was great! He let me compare both side by side. I went with the pro for many reasons. One being the retina display, it really does make a difference! Also because he informed me it was more practical for college classes. I love my laptop and am so glad I chose this. It is pricey but worth every penny!
