i don't mind this if they offer a rmbp that can be upgradable.

I hope they make that option available.
simply put in data doubler, hardwrk.com or whatever and do it yourself. why wait for apple?

Have a nice day, I give up.

A hint, PowerPC CPU's and x86 CPU's had similar performance
Well, while you are right about the performance differences etc., you're forgetting that apple has purchased an ARM design company and while it might not be an option for the current high-end models, it indeed might become an option for lower-end consumer computers. ...

Apple is experienced about switching underlying architecture, too and has proven this for multiple times already. Even though i'm not a fan of the idea switchting to ARM, it is reality already on iOS ... so ... the reality seems to be a lot closer to ARM than most of us might think.

could you kindly give an example for this? (i basically agree: also running office for windows in VM, but more because i like the UI from word for windows more than the one on mac ... i'm only using "standard" features so i was wondering which features you were referring to ...)

Having the whole line of Macs be Retina Display will definitely seperate those who buy Macs out of need, and those who buy Macs out of want! $$$

If Apple switches to make an Upgradeable rMBP has sense since they may need to build the retina display with the old design (using an extra glass layer as common screens), given the issues with current production low yield, also most PRO users for retina display wants to have he option of an Spinner Hybrid HDD, to have utpo 2TB data.

So has sense if apple Ditches current cMbp and rMbp and "fuses" into an some-upgradeable retina display (not as slim) unibody notebook with Hybrid HDD as well as SSD (memory-hdd upgradeable).

If the screen yield issue continues, current iMac may follow same backward re-design fate.

I don't want a Retina display in a MBA. It would eat thru too much battery and perhaps have ghosting problems. The screen is fine the way it is. Spend the extra money on more memory or larger flash storage.

Agreed. If I upgrade from my 2011 Air, it will be for things such as:
• USB 3
• Speed
• More RAM
• Better battery life
• Price

But not for a retina screen. In fact, Retina may push the price above what I'm willing to pay.

Actually it would probably be credited to Jobs setting it up before he died.

Hmm, should I wait till then to upgrade....if I wait until then I would probably have to see what is coming after that.

Just Kidding.

...So get a 2012 Air? It meets all your requirements.

Good point. But I don't think I'll swap the 2011 for a 2012. Maybe if I can get a good enough deal on Craigslist...

Apple's external superdrive is grossly overpriced. However, you can find a number of 3rd party USB external drives that are both just as good and about half the price of Apple's.
$60 for a bus powered DVD Superdrive overpriced...sorry no unless ofcourse you're a barista at Ken Hortons in which case yeah it's a days wage.
I'll take a double/double..
