    13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display question

    I am a proud iPhone Forum user at iPhone forums and I am glad that someone own iPhone forum also owned this forum as well.

    Anyway, I am not sure if I want to buy it.. Here:

    Configure - Apple Store (U.S.)

    I saw one at the Apple store that have two kinds.. One doesnt have dvd drive but have hdmi port and other one do have a dvd drive but do not have a HDMI port. I prefer one that come with HDMI and DVD drive built in unless DVD drive is useless to you ? However, a HDMI port is a must for me for some reasons.

    Last question: Does this link came with L-shaped MagSafe ? I like it because I disliked MagSafe 2.

    Hello, Welcome to the forum.
    I have the MacBook Pro Retina 13" and before that I had a MacBook Pro with a built in DVD Drive.
    I too wanted a built in drive but now having had my Retina MacBook for over a year I find I manage just fine, I bought the Apple Superdrive and it really is great.
    I can recommend the MacBook Pro Retina.

    Thanks for replying asap. I thank you for welcome me to the forum.

    You didn't answer about HDMI port and L-shaped MagSafe.. I know this one is MagSafe 2. I really lke L-shaped MagSafe because its cool looking.

    I'm not quite sure what you are asking about the HDMI Port, The MacBook Pro Retina has one port.
    It does have the Magsafe 2, I'm not too keen on it myself as it falls out quite easily.

    Okay.. this laptop doesnt have HDMI but usb port. I prefer HDMI port.. So is this one I need for an adapter ?

    The MacBook Pro Retina does have an HDMI Port, At least the one I am typing on right now does.
    No the L shaped MagSafe won't fit.

    I see... So the link I gave here does have an HDMI Port ?

    For the L shaped MagSafe won't fix ? I found that it does have an adapter for L shaped MagSafe to fix.

    I read the review statement that it is only 9.99 at apple store and amazon charged you 14.99.. You are better off going to the apple store. Here:

    It might be ugly looking adapter to pop up like that. I don't know since I thinK I am okay with this MagSafe 2 if I am buying the laptop. Hmm.
