In stock at Amazon – Macbook Pro with retina display
I have last years Macbook Pro with SSD drive and I can tell you that it is so blazing fast – get the 8GB of Ram. Now we just need to wait for Lightroom to release an update that takes advantage of the Retina display or if you are an Apeture user go ahead and pull the trigger, Aperture has an updated version that works very nicely with the new retina display. The suite of Adobe products will likely be updated with the next dot release, within the next three months.
