    Does anyone know where I can find a review on the non-retina 15"? Ive searched everywhere but only rmbp reviews in sight.

    Not really much to review. A review of the 2011 models will get you most of the information, combined with CPU/GPU benchmarks for the 2012 models.

    Except it's also seemingly a bit quieter and a bit cooler running. Plus there's USB 3.0. :)

    Look at the 2011 reviews.

    Now look at some of the Ivy Bridge USB3 benchmarks and you will get a good idea of how good that controller is.

    Look at some Samsung 830 reviews for a good idea of the SSD performance if you are ordering with an SSD.

    Find a review of a laptop with analogous CPU (of the Ivy Bridge generation) and the MBP CPU performance will be very similar, if not identical.

    Here's another one from MacWorld UK.

    edit: Seems to be the same review as the one on macworld.com with only the prices changed.
