    I made the mistake of wandering into the Apple store the other day, they had the non retina and retina 13" side by side. What has been seen can't be unseen. I'll definitely get a retina model. Most likely just a matter of what is available in the refurb section once I'm ready to buy, which is...

    Thanks for all the input guys. Still torn though. It's really going to come down to whether I want to pay the extra $160 for the 8gb version. I'm sure the 4gb will be fine for now but I don't think I would be able to keep it for 7 years like this MacBook.

    Thats good to know. I don't do any heavy lifting either. The most stress I put on the MacBook is Chrome with 6-10 tabs, Spotify, Mail, Twitter, BeerSmith 2, and Microsoft Office open all at the same time.

    What are your specs, prizrak? Just trying to gauge what I would really need. I know 4GB is plenty for my MacBook, but I'm running Snow Leopard.

    PRAM already zapped. Ugh. Looks like last years MacBook Pro refurb can be had for $1000. Pretty sure 4GB wont last though? Not entirely sure with OS X's new ram management system thing.

    Been getting a lot of this lately: Along with the entire screen distorting for a split second now and then, mostly with heavy Flash/video use. Also the wifi drops often and refuses to connect to anything. If I turn wifi off then it refuses to turn back on. Only way to get it back is to...

    The Volume Down key on my 3 week old Moto X has been getting stuck as of Sunday. I called Motorola last night and even though I'm past the 2 week return window, they gave me a MotoMaker code to design a new phone anyway. Good customer service.

    There were a few annoyances with BlackBerry 10, but nothing that was the end of the world. The #1 reason I had to get rid of it though, was the keyboard. Look at where the delete and send keys are located: Why would you put them on top of each other??? Who thought that was a good idea? I...

    Just bought one today with the discount. I have officially left BlackBerry. This is truly a sad day. Inevitable, but sad.

    Aaaaaaaand I now have working Spotify on my Z10! Thanks for all your help Evel. I really appreciate it. The Z10 is so nice. If people truly knew how well it worked and if it just had some apps this would blow iOS and Android away. Its quite a well built phone as well. edit: I just tried to...

    No its definitely a Verizon device. It typed in "myver" and got STL100-4. I'll be at the store tomorrow morning to get a sim card, apparently they're free. We'll see. Edit: The guy at the Verizon store couldn't have been more helpful. Got my phone activated in 5 minutes. I asked about the Z30...

    Got my Z10 today! But....... as I got it from eBay, it came with a T-Mobile sim card so I can't use it yet. Will have to run to the Verizon store to get a sim card tomorrow.

    Awesome! Thank you, that explained everything. Now that you mention it though.. I have no problem with running 10.2, could you give me an idea of how to do that as well? I am on a Mac, but I have easy access to a Windows machine if need be. Another question: If I already converted the .apk...

    Right now I can't get through one hour without charging, so I'll take it. I got my Spotify.bar ready to go, now I just need the phone. edit: Evel, can you give me a simple instructional on the debug token aspect of sideloading? I thought I had it figured out but the tutorial I used was no help.
