    Default I am buying a new macbook pro retina 13.5 inch. RAM or Processor upgrade?

    My question is if i should upgrade RAM to 16 gb, or the processor to the i7? I will be using this for school. My most intensive applications would be Skyrim via bootcamp, Parallels Desktop, and sketchup. For $200 I can upgrade either the RAM or processor. Should I even upgrade one?

    Welcome to iMore! You might want to consider the RAM upgrade. All of today's processors are so darn fast I don't think you'll notice a difference between the i5 and i7 for what you'll be doing.
