Like the tittle says, do you think MacBook Pro with retina screen will go down in price after a few iterations? Or do you think this is a new price standard that we all will have to adjust to. The way I see it apple and its innovation technology (retina screen computer specifically) are more of a novelty than a tool. Because one can function just fine with cheaper price non apple computers. By the time ssd and high resolution screens become mainstream with other manufacture, apple will have to find other newer innovation to keep their loyal costumers interested and maintain their premium price, as well as attracting newer customers.
