    It's alright, just an average deal. That's a June 2012 model, so just OK.

    I'd most likely because it's a 2.7ghz and not a 2.8ghz like you see with the 2013s. I could be wrong though.

    The model number. Its a maxed out 2012 model, so it's not a bad price when MSRP on that would've been 3200 or so from apple.

    Actually, the 2.8MHz is 'simply' a $259 Upgrade (for us up here in Canada at least!!)

    The Model (if it is correctly shown as a Z0ML4LL/A) supposedly has a release date of Mar-13, vs the model it replaced (MC976LL/A) which was the June-12 version.. I am pretty sure at least.. :D

    So, I would say a 'decent' price.. but as always, Buy it if you Need it, or Wait until you do as The Next Big Thing is not likely that far away!!

    Just seen a thread over here with one guy who ordered that product (macmall said is 2013) and received the 2012 model!

    Why? Because that's a 2012 model! If you click buy you will see that you can lower your processor to 2.3! That's a 2012 processor!

    Well that sucks!!! Why is it so hard to find a good deal on a current MBP if they are going to be replaced soon?

    That deal went down the drain for me when they wanted to charge me sales tax. Better off getting it directly from Apple.

    For that price you could get an Alienware, MSI GT70 Dragon, or an Origin PC with two GPUs.

    Your obviously not considering the OS. I would never want Windows without the option of running OSX. If that means paying more, so be it.

    Meh. OSX is overrated these days.

    Anyway... monitor pricing here. It's updated daily. These are all reputable dealers. My go-to supplier is B&H. Always fast and free shipping, no sales tax (if outside of NY), and a free copy of Parallels with each Mac.

    eBay has a bunch of brand new 2013 512gb 2.7 ghz 15" rMBPs from $2100-$2400 from top rated sellers. That is where I got mine.

    I own both a rbmp 15 and an Alienware M17. What I can tell here is that they are totally different "animals". My Alienware has one and only purpose: pure gaming at home. It crushes my rmbp 15 in terms of "raw" power. However, there's a price to that. It's bulky and heavy (nearly 10lb just for the laptop). This is not the link of laptop I wanna use on the couch or travel a lot with.

    On the other end, my rmbp combines the best balance between power, portability, functionality and style. I tend to use it much more than my Alienware and if I had to choose one, I would keep my rmbp for sure.

    As for the never ending debate of Windows vs Mac OS X, I believe it's more a matter of personal choice. Both OS' are equal in their strengths and I could live with either one although I tend to favor the Mac since most of my media is on that ecosystem. Just my two cents...
