rMBP 2013

Hey,

So I am currently running with a 13in White Macbook with an ssd and ram upgrade and it is doing its job quiet well so far. I am however looking forward to the rMBP refresh and then upgrading.

What do you guys think the refresh will contain if anything?

I am just curious and excited!

Surely the most notable change / update will most like be Haswell.
Other than that, I'm expecting just some minor tweaks here and there...

Haswell, 802.11ac possibly, Samsung 840 ssd. Other than that nothing more really.

I mostly expect a 100-200$ price cut above all. Or less expensive BTOs. I am also looking forward to see what graphics card they will use.

Haswell seems like the big expectation, but this might actually lead to two or three improvements that are apparent to the user: better battery life, better integrated graphics (more for the 13-inch, but also less frequent switching on the 15-inch), and, of course, faster processing in general.

Also, let's not forget that if Apple announces another new version of OS X in February (as with Mountain Lion in 2012), it might come pre-installed on any summer Mac refreshes.

Haswell (with all that implies)
OS X 10.9
Faster wi-fi?
Better drivers for retina display/UI?
Faster flash storage?
16 GB RAM standard in high end 15-inch model?
Slight ($100-$200) price drop?

I'm in!

It'll use whatever graphics is integrated into the Haswell chip (HD5000?)

I think those expecting a price drop will be waiting a long while. Look at recent trends - the iMac saw a 100 price increase. I think the price is set to stay - it's 300 more than a cMBP for a swap to an SSD, double RAM, new chassis and retina display. Compared to Apple's CTO options - it's a bit of a bargain (a cMBP specced out to the same level is more expensive).

I personally think it'll be very minor - has well + maybe faster ram. I can't think of any spec changes I'd want to make to mine.

I don't think $100 is likely. If they dropped it, they'd try to get it under the $2000 mark.

That's up to LG to solve the problem not Apple. My Samsung screen dosen't have the issue but the previous 4 LG screens I had did.

There's going be no change in pricing whatsoever. There will still be the classic MacBook Pro & there will still be the retina MacBook Pro.
