    Nothing was said about them today and I just looked on their website and they no longer have the 15"; just the 13 one. Are they done producing them and just trying to get rid of existing stock?

    From what was said (and not said) I just assumed so.

    Looks like they are keeping the 13" cMBP at 1199. Doesn't look like it got Haswell, though.

    It's very interesting that they've kept around the lower-end 13" cMBP, rather than the higher-end one.

    This means one of two things:

    1. They have existing stock of the 2.5Ghz and just want to get rid of it.

    2. The 2.9Ghz is too powerful relative to the Retina models, and they don't want to encourage people to go with an "outdated" machine where you can still upgrade it down the road.... jeesh, who wants that? Then you won't buy another computer in 2 years.

    I guess it's probably the first reason now that I think about it. People like me bought up all the 2.9Ghz models. :)

    clearly not, can you not see it on the apple website?

    there's probably a group of people (students) that (think they) still need an optical drive.

    None of the newer Retinas are upgradable correct? If so, I'll happily stick with my MBP instead of shelling out an extra $100 for 4GB of memory...

    As expected, now to wait some days for the new Lenovo mobile workstation to be more than just pre announced.

    And so finally choose one with AMD graphics.

    Yep... looks like we entered the iPadMac era. Maybe my next computer will be an user-upgradeable Lenovo.

    Where can I get more information on this? Or updates?

    That's the way I'm leaning, but I've been leaning that way since they discontinued the 17". I bought the last version of the 17" with the fastest available CPU. When it's ready for replacement I'll be forced to go with a non-Apple laptop running Linux.

    I doubt it will happen but iTunes for Linux would be nice to have at that point.

    There's barely any information on the W540. It's going to be available in November.

    But if there's no AMD graphics option, I will not buy it.

    The Lenovo has Thunderbolt, like some new HP.

    But last time I checked, there was no AMD graphics option for the new real HP mobile workstations.

    The Dell have AMD graphics option, but no Thunderbolt or DreamColor equivalent. It is also not possible to combine the AMD graphics with a QHD display.
