I love Apple, the new 15" MBPA is just about the coolest professional laptop on the planet. But even if I would sacrifice the additional screen size, no antiglare display is a deal breaker for me. I am not keen on non upgradable ram or HD either but I do understand when you are pushing the form envelop some function concessions have to be made. That said my 17" MBP is the perfect fit for me the AG display is high enough res and I can replace the HD and RAM with my preferred choices. Still plenty light and thin and Sandybridge i7 provides me with more than enough performance Still the 15" Retina is very cool.
