So, I just ordered a rMBP...my primary reason being it's viewing angle. I know it may sound strange but as an artist that relies on accurate color accuracy, and not having my own proper pro level workstation just yet, my biggest petpeeve with monitors in general has been the color shifting while moving your head/the screen (even an inch). I find it beyond usefull that this monitor maintains its contrast and colors when shifting - that was actually more important than the resolution...sorry, I'm losing focus. The question I had for you guys is...what do you think the chances are that despite Apple's claims, and knowing how the comp is assembled with the soddered RAM, etc...within time, technicians will figure out a way to upgrade it? I'm definitely moving forward with my purchase regardless, so it's not a huge deal, but I am curious. I think that...if in fact these are the next gen systems and we see the whole Pro line take follow suit of the rMBP, I'd have to imagine that within a year or 2 these actually WILL be upgradable. Whether or not it can be done safely is probably another question completely but if there's money to be made, I'm sure someone will figure out how. Especially with the demand that is going to be created for such a service within the next few years. What do you think?
