Faster processors. GPU is around 50% better. Newer OS.What is the big difference between the new MBP 15 (base) vs previous generation MBP 15 base unit? I know about USB 3 but is there another big difference I'm missing?
You make it sound as if there's absolutely no way of transferring files via ethernet. What about the ethernet adapter thingy?i'm going to buy a previous generation myself. i can't stomach the fact that i will not be able to upgrade memory or hard drive in the new retina macbook pro. i also have a problem with the fact that there is no ethernet port. i transfer files via a wired network and its A LOT faster than file sharing via wireless.
for the first time in my life, i don't want the new apple product
He's talking about the non-retina models, which still have all those things.the new macbook pro has non-upgradeable memory and hard drive. it has no ethernet port, FW800, or optical drive.
yeah, i just saw that Apple Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter for $30....thunderbolt port can do anything i guess.You make it sound as if there's absolutely no way of transferring files via ethernet. What about the ethernet adapter thingy?
