Sketch is a decent vector drawing program for mac and windows, but it has a pretty BS licensing policy that says any individual must buy a separate license for every computer he or she owns (check here if you don't believe me).

Also, I really wanted to upgrade from the 13" screen to the 15". However, I didn't want to fork over the $2000+ to get my dream machine from the Apple store. Luckily, with some research and a little tweaking I was able to get a very solid machine for just barely over $1000. Here's how...
