Who else is disappointed by how much more the retina display is going to cost...?
Disappointed? I guess you could be but really, just how inexpensive do you think that kind of display should be?
I thought maybe another hundred bucks or two from the base model 15" which is 1700.
Gain IPS display (1920x1200, 2880x1800 retina), 256 GB SSD (which is $200 by itself), and lose 300 MHz and a 750 GB hdd (compared to high end 15" non-retina)
That to me is a worthwhile trade? All of my larger data isn't stored on my main hard drive anyway, it's on another computer in the network.
Apple is a premium brand. Hence, people should pay the premium price.
I thought it was a very, very good price.
It's Apple..what did you expect?
really a couple hundred?
it was $200 to upgrade RAM from 4GB to 8GB
Yea, that makes sense, if I get that, it BETTER be worth the extra 400. Most likely will be fap worthy.
The price increase is not just for the Retina Display. They're also upgrading the hard drive from a dirt-cheap HDD to an expensive 256 GB SSD (about $230, depending on where you choose to shop). The RAM upgrade also adds on to that price. Not to mention the new ports+redesigned exterior of the new Pro.
I think $2199 is a perfect price.
Education Pricing is something I'm really glad to have going.
And the free, 100 dollar app store gift card will make me feel even better.
Lol, it doesn't bother me seeing as I'm not planning on getting one.
But I did expect it to be expensive.
I'm with you a million percent its way overpriced
It isn't just the retina display. It's also the standard 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD.
If you upgrade the base 15" Macbook Pro with 8GB RAM, a 256GB SSD, and the 1680x1050 display, it comes to $2499.
Apple is most certainly going to drop the price on this by next year. Apple always do this...
Expecting the price to drop to 1999 dollars on base model by 2013.
It's overpriced, but early adapters are always going to pay for it.
$200 off! Sweet! If you sell the gift card you can get retina <$2000
$2200 - $200 (Educational Discount) - $100 (iTunes Gift Card) = $1900
Not bad for what you are getting...The MBP w/ RD is a HIGH END machine.
Now that is a good deal.
Top end BTO $$$
$3749 for the 15" 2.7 GHz, 16 GB RAM, and 768 GB SSD Retina display.
oh nice its 2299/$ instead of 2199/$ they said on keynote....
Expensive? Seriously? When they kept revealing all those crazy new features, Retina display, SSD, quiet fan, GT 650m, quad-core IB i7, 0.7 inches thick, ports .. oh so many ports .., I was worried it would be > $3,000. $2,200 is a bargain!
I think the retina MBP is a great price.
It's the price of the other MBPs that it not so hot.
But the iPads retina display didn't bring up the cost that much.
The Retina MBP starts at $1,999 with Education discount. $1,999 + $100 B2S Promo is very fair for it, considering that it also COMES with an SSD. The non-retina MBP has an HDD. This is coming from someone who wanted one but couldn't afford it btw, and I still think the price is fair, my budget just wasn't high enough so I ordered a BTO 13" MBA with 8Gb of RAM.
Both the dirt cheap and ram are also soldered on.
