I disagree in one respect. I do not think all of the next gen MBPs will or should use only SSDs for mass storage. The price is not right as yet. I think some models will use only SSDs and other may use a relatively small SSD as the boot drive and a rotating drive for data. That offers a more cost effective balance for most users.<snip>If Apple didn't already come out with the "next gen" 15 rMBP with SSD, thin form, ect, I might have agreed, but clearly Apple is moving their next gen line to all SSD.
The HD4000 won't have any problems driving a 13" retina display. It has just over 10% more pixels than a 27" thunderbolt display, and even an older HD3000 is fine with a tbolt display.Well it will be Ivy Bridge of course, so 4000.
But doesn't the problems with the performance of the GPU in the 15" rMBP concern you? There's no way they will put a better GPU inside the 13" without refreshing the 15" version.
Probably same processors and RAM options as current 13" macbook pro models. Same GPU (HD4000).[DL];15584743 said:So, any guesses? I can see this having the same processor but a lesser graphics card and possibly less RAM. This is what I've been waiting for. I hope to God that the base price isn't ridiculous.
