Arrival: New 13″ retina Macbook Pro!

My wife surprised me with a new 13″ retina Macbook Pro for my birthday, which was earlier this week. Owing to several projects on my plate, I didn’t get around to setting the new machine up until a few days ago. The specs of the new machine are: 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD.

This rMBP replaces my ancient Macbook Pro (early 2008 model).

The new machine couldn’t have come in at a more opportune time. Expect a review in the next few weeks, once I’ve had some time to live with it. Meanwhile, I’m on the hunt for some type of protective case / sleeve to use with my new MBP. Do you have any recommendations?

    I really like the new Pad & Quill Valet Luxury Case.

    It is a bit on the expensive side but looks really nice. I own their Luxury Pocket Book case for iPhone and have been really happy with it in terms of both quality and durability. I have been debating pre-ordering the Valet Case myself. The hold-up being that I am in need of a new computer and the case only fits up to a 13 inch Macbook.
