    Anybody help me out on witch Mac I need to buy. This is my first Mac computer. I no I want a 13 inch but that's about it. I don't really no what storage to get or nothing. I don't do much video editing or nothing like that but I watch a lot of movies on iTunes and Netflix and just the regular stuff anybody else does. I have a lot of content on iTunes that why I don't really no what storage and size to get. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated !

    It sounds like the base model RAM and CPU will be fine for you. As far as storage, figure out how much you are currently using for documents, photos, video, music, etc. then multiply by at least 1.5 to get the new amount of storage to get. That should give your media empty of room to grow.

    I use a MacBook Air with just a 128 gig drive and slim bus powered 2 TB external drive with my iTunes library which is over 150 Gig. I keep the iPhoto library on the external also. The external is smaller than the iPhone 6 Plus and twice as thick. I just surf and stream to a Apple TV and Sync my iPhone . No photo of video editing.

    Do u think the MacBook Air is good for watching a lot of movies on the go or would you go with the MacBook Pro. And thanks for the reply I was not even thinking bout doing it that way.

    Everything looks better on the retina MacBook Pro. It just depends on whether you want to pay the premium for it. But movies will look fine on the Air.

    Thanks for the reply I pulled the trigger and ordered a Mac Pro Retina 8gb 256 on storage I think it will be enough. Just hope I can get used to using a Mac like I said I have never used one. I have always had pc. But I can't wait to get it. I hope it will last for a few years that's why I went with the 8 gb. I don't really no much about them but that's what I was told to do.

    The transition is easy as long as you have an open mind. Learn the OS X way of doing something, not get upset when it doesn't work like Windows.
    Anyway, congrats on your purchase and feel free to ask if you have questions.
