I currently own a Toshiba Satellite A665-S6050. It's been great for about 4 years or so of ownership but battery life is poor [I've purchased two new batteries since ownership] and some minor issues have started to surface of late.

I was using my business partner's newly purchased 15" MacPro + Retina recently and was really impressed with everything about it. Amazing screen resolution, outstanding battery life [I had it for five days], REALLY quick downloads and web browsing and just overall seemed more ergonomic than my Toshiba Satellite.

It will be the family laptop while we travel. Web surfing, watching movies [Netflix, Hulu, Apple, Comcast, Cox] storing pictures & family vacation clips and the like. I will also use it for some business ventures but that's not the norm.

I'll spend on quality, no problem, but like I mentioned spending just north of $3000.00 for a laptop is some serious change. Especially considering what you can purchase for that kind of money in a non-Apple product.

Just trying to cover bases.

Truck was sold today [5/19]. I got an offer I couldn't turn down. I had no more need for a pickup so I cut it loose. About to purchase a '14 Jeep SRT8 this week.

Grub out!
