I have finally caved and ordered a new laptop. I am finally retiring my Late 2008 15” MacBook Pro after 4 years of service. You have served me well. The new laptop I have ordered is actually a refurbished set. I took the plunge partly because the refurbished set is cheaper and faster than the configuaration I had in mind to get.
My new laptop is a 15” MacBook Pro with Retina screen, 2.6Ghz, 16GB ram, 256GB SSD. Coupled together with the AppleCare, I paid SGD$3357 for them. That’s SGD$11 cheaper than 2.3Ghz 15” base model after upgrading to 16GB ram.
I can’t wait for it to arrive! Will update once I get a hands on.
