    I've noticed something weird: When you BTO the normal 15" to the same specs as the Retina 15", you end up with this:

    Retina: $2799
    Non-Retina: $3199

    Both have identical processors, RAM, GPUs, and storage. The only difference lies in the 2880x1800 display in the Retina Mac and the Hi-Res in the normal Mac.

    This is obviously excellent news. Does anyone know why Apple would do this?

    Because Apple wildly overcharges for the SSD upgrades in the regular Pro.
