I recently spent a ton of money on a new laptop. A MacBook Pro 13 Inch. Why? WHY NOT SHUT UP!
In reality, I brought this because I need access to XCode. Now I know there are cheaper ways to get access to XCode (VM, MacMini, Macbook Air, EBay Mac, Hackintosh) however, I wanted a new fancy machine that felt nice and looked good. Hence the MacBook Pro. So that is my justification. I know there are better machines for the money, but the rMBP is good. And I like it.
Oh, I also saved like £500 because they put the price up four days later. LUCKY.
