    I'm interested to know if there is ANY noticeable difference under the hood. More specifically if there's a new heat sink... Thanks!! :)

    i'm curious which of these is the better buy (from MacMall)

    "old" 15" rMBP w/ 2.6ghz i7, 16gb ram, 512gb ssd - $2600 "sale" price

    "new" 15" rMBP w/ 2.4ghz i7, 16gb ram, 512gb ssd - $2694
    "new" 15" rMBP w/ 2.7ghz i7, 16gb ram, 512gb ssd - $2794

    I'm not aware what differences there are in these machines besides a small bump in the CPU for the new models

    The old 15" is the best deal. Cheapest of the three as well even though it's faster than the new base and not much slower than the new high channel configuration.

    i do wonder if there are any unmentioned upgrades or fixes in the new units. the old 15" at macmall doesnt even ship with mountain lion

    i just thought of this...if the old units are still shipping with Lion, they're at least 6 months old, and so are the batteries. since the batteries have a finite life, with or without use, they're already down in value

    the "old" one is a great deal comparatively
