Mac retina or new air

No idea what one to go for as no matter what gotta buy a separate cd/DVD drive, just sold my 2011 MacBook pro and it's mostly used for my dj software and Lightroom 4 , which one do I go for ?

Fully spec'd Retina IMO. That alongside a Thunderboltndisplay will give you one he'll of a setup that it sorta future proofed.

I'd go for the upper spec MBP retina with the ram upgrade if I was buying today.

Really nice machine, should be lightening fast too. Expensive even with student discount at about £2200!

Listen to Tom.

Anything more than a base-spec 2012 MBP 15" would be overkill and a waste of money.

Retina coming to Macbook Air at all soon ?
CBA with expense of MBP, but an air would be ideal.

Sick to death of the ever slowing boot up times for windows.

But LR on retina will be so pretty Alex!

Yeh fair point... I've been using the retina mac for a week now and it is so impressive, I just assumed that the DJ'ing was the main use of the MBP for the OP. didn't pay attention to LR!
