No More Non-Retina MacBook Pros?
|No More Non-Retina MacBook Pros?|
Sources in Apple’s supply chain have indicated that Apple will end production of the base 13-inch MacBook Pro laptops this year in favor of the thinner models with the Retina display. For some, choosing between the two is not a tough choice considering the $100 price difference, but for others, there may be more to it than that.
Churches and other businesses that supply Apple laptops to staff members for daily use look for a decent amount of storage space. The non-Retina model comes with a 500GB hard drive of the spinning disk variety. The Retina models start with a much faster SSD hard drive, but only have 128GB of storage. In order to get a comparably sized hard drive, the cost increases by $500. Even if one can make do with 256GB of storage, there is still a $300 premium over the current base model (though 8GB of RAM is included instead of 4GB).
Will this affect your church or business? If the current base model is your preferred laptop choice for staff, it might be good to get in orders sooner, rather than later.
