MacBook Pro with screen Retina or normal MacBook Pro?

HI, I want to buy a MacBook Pro, but I don't know what we should I buy, the retina or normal? I look at the series and videos from YouTube and I want to edit videos and my pictures if I buy one, so I thought that the retina it would be better for me, but it is too expensive. I want it with 512 ir 500g and but the MacBook Pro with retinal display costs $700 more. Also, I watched some YouTube videos that compared the MacBook Pro with Retina display vs the regular MacBook Pro. And the MacBook pro with the Retina display is faster. is there too much difference between the normal pro and the macbook with the Retina display? And there too much difference on the screen?

If you have a normal MacBook Pro or a MacBook Pro with retina Display, please tell me your experience with it. Also tell me what I should buy.

Thank you

Your best option is to go to a store (Apple or reseller) and compare screens side by side.  Only then can you make an informed decision.

The main differences between the two models is that the retina has no DVD player and cannot have put RAM at day after purchase and the PCIe SSD updated at great expense (which will also void any warranty).

The non-retine can have the RAM has increased to a maximum 16 GB at a later date and may have installed later hard/SSD drives of up to 2 TB of capacity.

    So from what I can tell the model have built in analog audio input, you would probably need some kind of third-party USB audio interface. You may be able to record in mono with a suitable adapter because the port is apparently compatible with Apple headphones for example.

    I bought an Apple iMac with screen Retina 5 K yesterday! But today I read something of negative on this Imac regarding Adobe creative cloud- so I would ask if I cuse this iMac with the retina 5 K with all my programs Adobe Creative Cloud?

    You can use it, but there are compatibility issues that slow apps. Return you it? I see no reason for this, because 2015 versions are just a few weeks and probably will correct these problems.


  • CS5 Design Premium and recently bought a MacBook Pro with the retina display

    I have CS5 Design Premium and recently bought a MacBook Pro with the retina display. everything seems pixelated. Question: if I buy a large external screen for use with the product Adobe will always look pixelated?

    I can't answer that question, but I can say that CS5 is is no longer being updated for the new hardware and operating systems, so as far as I know, if you buy an external with the same kind of screen 'High definition' monitor you have now, you will have the same problem

  • Flash Builder looks blurry on Macbook Pro with the retina display


    Interface Builder Flash looks blurry on MacBook Pro with the retina display.

    Here is the screenshot:

    Enlarge the image in actual size and notice that the interface of Flash Builder looks blurry.

    Please solve this problem.


    I had the same problem - could not believe my eyes on how horrible and blurry Flash Builder looked on my new Macbook Pro w retina.  Through she had suffered since last week and have just discovered this work around that someone figured out for Eclipse that also works on Flash Builder (guess b/c it is built on Eclipse).  Here is the link to the bug report that shows the work around (thanks to Brad Hudgeons):

    Here is a cut and paste from the bug report in the case of the above url is deleted:

    Here's the workaround:  Do "Show package contents" on the  Edit Contents/Info.plist.  Just above     Place this:  NSHighResolutionCapable 

    Instead of Eclipse, display the contents of the package on Adobe Flash Builder   After you change the Info.plist file, go to the Adobe Flash Builder and reproduce.  It will create an Adobe Flash Builder 4.6  Delete your original Adobe Flash Builder 4.6 and rename the Adobe Flash Builder 4.6 Adobe Flash Builder  Then launch Flash Builder - you should see the text which is much clearer.  The graphics on the user interface are still unclear but at least the text should be crispy.

  • Problems with the retina display resolution


    I have a macbook pro (2015) with a retina display 15 "that I can't seem to adjust to the correct resolution. The native resolution, as I understand it, is supposed to be 2880 x 1800. I can't see my resolution when I put its "default value to display" in system preferences, but if I change it to "scaling", it is said that the default resolution "looks like 1440 x 900". Even when I go to the maximum the space option, it doesn't give me that 'looks at 1920 x 1200.

    When I up resolutions for the screens of the retina, it looks like the scale at 1440 x 900 option is supposed not to be available for the 13 "display.

    The native resolution is not supposed to be available in the options when the scale is selected. What you need is respectful of the eye from the App Store, which will increase the resolution above the option 'More space' completely in the native resolution.

    somehow my screen turned completely sideways, how to rotate the screen back to normal?

    Use the Ctrl key or the Alt key with the arrow keys to rotate your screen to its normal position. You can also right-click an empty space on your desktop and in the context menu that appears look for the rotation of the screen, orientation, landscape, or something similar.

  • Windows does not shut down correctly, please choose an option (safe mode, safe mode with network, start windows normally

    Original title: battery

    When the battery dies on Windows 7 Home premium, what makes the look of the laptop screen as to everyone with the same computer? (IE black, dim and then black, dim and white and then black, Sun & blue, etc.)
    And you always get the "Windows did not shut down correctly, please choose an option (safe mode, safe mode with network, start windows normally)" Note?

    It could be a hardware problem, so it is best to contact DELL or a local technician if the problem persists.

    As a work around, I suggest to update the drivers of the computer display and check if it makes a difference.

  • Scaling Flex Mobile project with iPad Retina display (3rd generation).

    Adobe and al.,.

    With the new iPad 3 we have now a ton more pixels to use. I know well and have already tested AIR 3.1 + compiler command line option (-platformsdk) for the Retina display on the new iPad. In ActionScript projects mobile, the content is rendered beautifully on the new iPad. But with Flex Mobile projects, something happens that forces him to render incorrectly. It is the retina-fine screen, but the size is too small.

    Here is a picture WITHOUT the construction tag - platformsdk, which causes the application to be doubled to fit on the new iPad to pixel:


    Note that it is scaled proportionally, even while the text and the items are a bit pixelated. Not a big deal, but noticeable on the device.

    This image is taken with the rendering of the app to the retina (the platformsdk - pointing to iOS SDK 5.1 setting):


    As you can see, text components are made really clear, but the scale is far away. Obviously, it's getting the width of 2048 x 1536 of the device, but it is much too small.

    How can I fix it? I tried to change the applicationDPI, but it doesn't fix it. Setting a width/height of 1024 x 768 has nothing either. It seems that we have to overrride a behavior that causes all so small adjustment.

    A little help?

    Thank you


    Richard Lord posted a blog yesterday using the iPad screen retina with Adobe Air and one of the things I noticed is that the new iPad returns a 132 DPI, the specs say that the device is 264 ppi. I don't have one of the new iPads, so I can't test this, but it seems that it is just a case of the return the wrong DPI device which is something that has happened before. I could check the section to this page titled "substitute the default DPI" and see what happens if the device return 240 when running on the new iPad.

  • macOS Sierra problems with screen sharing


    After update to Sierra in two of my Macs, I can´t use the screen sharing. I used to use my second computer using screen sharing, but now, whenever I connect I see the split screen but active areas for use on as sleep, restart and turn off keep its original position. This means that if I like the closing down of the remote computer, I need to press just left... really strange sleep.

    I'm trying to connect to remote VNC Android and the appearance of the screen split also and with the same problem.

    Anyone has the same problem or an idea how to fix?
    Thanks in advance!

    Omission of base: after the descent of the Sierra update on both computers, forgot I manually start after the update to the same date (a few minutes before). This cause the problem.
    I launch server run OK and no problem with screen sharing.
    Maybe not to repeat this mistake, but just in case it's useful, I leave my explanation.

    See you soon,.
