Forget Tablets! The MBPr pricing is too high and makes no sense...does anyone forsee the pricing coming down to earth in the coming months? are these things selling well? is there a wisdom in keeping the older MBP line while refreshing its guts? Why wasn't there an MBA 15" and what will happen to the MBA line all together? it seems that the Air has fully replaced the baseline MB model they used to have. By nonsense I mean the following: I am running a mid 2010 i7 MBP 15 non SSD. it's starting to slow down even after a clean mountain lion, and the battery doesn't hold much past 90min. $1800 for entry level MBP15 replacement is already too much in comparison to what you can get with the competition, it's also old form and heavy to carry around. And the $2200 for entry level MBP15r is honestly...Absurd! I would get an MBA but I need a 15". So I am going to lug my brick around hoping that I will always be near some power source for now. Let me add that my maxed out i7 was $2200 out the door in 2010, and you couldn't get it better unless u put a 256GB SSD for another $600 or so. If you want a maxed machine you are look north of 3k... How do you see the notebook lines developing in 6 months, 1 year, and a year and a half from now?
