I'm in a place where I need a MacBook Pro i7. I looked at the MBP Retina and I found that even with 500Gb SSD, it's not enough for my need to transcode music and edit raw movies. I think it's impractical to buy extra things and an external drive.
I think the older, thicker brother is a better fit because I can convert the optical bay to fit a 2Tb drive and upgrade the system drive to an SSD. The only drawback is that it isn't a retina display.
My Question is, is there any hope that Apple will release the thicker, older MBP with Retina display? Or will I be forced to go the Hackintosh route?
