I am in need of a new system. Currently, I have this:
1. Macbook pro 2.5ghz core2duo, 4gb 666mhz, 200gb 5400 hard drive
2. Dell u2312hm monitor
I ordered a Dell u2713hm and after inspecting it, it has a dirt spot behind the screen so I need to send it back and after reading a lot of reviews on forums, most people do have problems (blacklight bleeding, overdrive ghosting, image retention, buzzing, yellow tint, ips glare) with it so right now I am debating if I should return it for a refund but for what other monitor? I don't have the money to pay for a professional monitor. I don't even have a calibrating tool. Anyone using the u2713hm with good results?
As for the computer part, I am hesitating between a new 13 inch or 15 inch retina macbook pro. Most of the time, the computer will be hooked up to a monitor (dell if I keep it or something else) because I don't need to go out a lot, but I want to be able to do so. I plan on keeping my computer for the next 4-5 years just like this one. On macrumors, a lot of people are complaining about yellow tint issues on the haswell retina macbook pro such it kinda turned me down to go grab one right away. Is the intel integrated graphics 5100 enough or should I get a dgpu with the high end model?? 8gb vs 16gb
Could you share your real life usage and experience if you have one or the other?
Thank for your help and consideration.
