Intel's ivy bridge is NO LONGER on any assembly line for future laptop releases. Every new laptop henceforth from leading manufacturers will see Haswell in their build. It's not a matter of perspective nor opinion. The ivy bridge system is obsolete.
Sure, it can still do what it was advertised to, but that doesn't save it from being obsolete.
On top of that.. The ram is better... iGPU much better, SSD twice as fast. And of course the cath here is the monumental increase in battery life.
Broadwell will see even better specs than haswell with the jump from 22nm to 14nm.
When Broadwell is released, haswell will be obsolete. Your ivy bridge would be negligible.
Oh my apologies. I noticed you said 2012 MBP is still the "current model". You're completely right.
Still outdated tech though. You'll remember my post in a month and a half when your only condolence will be that it is not 'visbile' that you're using an old model.
That, or you make peace with what you have. Not many people can afford to buy the latest tech on a yearly basis. Be content with what you have. But do understand that the model ia obsolete. No one woke up today morning thinking "the 2012 MBA is better for me".
