Just wanted to gauge the current mood in this forum. See poll above.
I'll stick with my lovely 760GB of RAID SSD storage that I can swap when I want, thankyou.
Sticking with '11 MBP.
Premium prices for a non-user-exchangeable, soldered setup is a slippery slope.
if I do, it'll be the 15" Retina MBP...want to see exactly how much of a hit my savings will take.
I was really hoping for a 13" redesign as well.
Now I have to do a bit of research to see what I want, and what will suit my needs.
I wish I could have made the choices even more comprehensive, but there are so many options...
Probably the new Retina MBP. Seems like I won't have the option to do a HDD in the optical bay in addition to the SSD (no optical bay) like I can with my current MBP. Wonder what a 16gb/512gb MBP will run with Retina display.
I dont think the 15" retina is user upgradable. What a shame... If the 17" is announced with retina I will buy it..
my debit card is armed for a Retina, so long as I can use the student discount
The next gen Pro was basically what I had in mind. 15", slim, dedicated graphics, quad core processor, and 5+ hour battery.
Just trying to decide whether to go with the stock 8GB or upgrade to 16GB RAM. 512GB 'drive is a given.
In my opinion, if you plan to do lots of video editing or anything that requires heavy lifting, get 16GB.
Plus, it's great for future-proofing.
I'll wait 5-6 years to retire my 2011 MBA and get the latest
I'll got for the new old look 13'. It's going to be fast...
You don't have a "I'm still thinking about it since I don't blow thousands of dollars on a new computer without taking a few days to mull it over" option.
I'll be waiting for this as well. Guess I should pick a new hobby other than perusing rumor sites all day, could be awhile!
You are keeping your current Mac/PC, then!
I'm hoping the student discount is $200 off. Then maybe I'll be able to grab one.
Sure will. Anybody know when I can pick one up ASAP? Hopefully they'll have it in stores by the time I get off work.
Just saw the specs, looks like I must get the $2799 config to get the 512GB SSD Not sure I can stomach the premium for the 16GB.
Still have no idea how much the RAM u/g will cost...
I intend to purchase the next gen 15" base as soon as the store pops back online, and I'm pretty darn excited
I'll be buying one but I'm not sure which one yet. I'm a little disappointed that there was no upgrade to the screens of the 13 or 15.
The new slim 15inch has my eye, but it all depends on whether I can get it with a 500GB SSD for around £2000. Otherwise I will go for one of old design 15inch.
Edit: Might wait until I see the prices of the Ethernet and firewire adapters too, as knowing Apple, they will be $100 each.
the retina MBP uses an IPS display and is 1920x1200 without Retina scaling -- so getting the new MBP is a no brainer (if you've ever used an IPS display)
the 15" retina display model is way overpriced, £1799 with only 256gb ssd? its not even configurable, to be honest this is way overpriced and I'm disappointed, the screen cannot possibly contribute to that price point? i mean everything is flash, but to me i don't see how this price point is properly marketed?
a more reasonable fee would have been £1399.
As much as I want the new Retina MBP, I don't really need it. My Mid-2010 15" MBP is serving me just fine with 8gb ram and an SSD.
No, I'm not, because I am planning to buy something in the next few months. I'm just not sure what. Though I suppose you are correct as it is.
