    I just got one brand new for $3350 on Black Friday. I used to have a 2.7/16/512 but it had an LG screen. I switched back to a 17" but now I miss the form factor of the rMBP too much! :p

    I'm getting almost the same machine as a replacement - 2.3Ghz / 16Gb / 768Gb SSD, since 2.7Ghz CPU will probably overheat and throttle under full load (at least that's what I had with two 2.6GHz machines)

    Feeling the pain, but this thing flat rocks

    Have had the same machine for about a week for work. I run an engineering firm and wanted the larger drive for running Bootcamp with AutoCad Civil 3D and some other CAD software. Running mine with a thunderbolt display.

    We have two and love them as our main computers. We did not pay $8000 for them. There are many discounts to be had...not the least is tax free weekend.

    I did get the education discount. Without a cto build, the applestore only had the full spec version, unless I opted for the 8gb version with 512ssd.

    I'm with ya OP;)
    Almost ten weeks ago...I bought the 2.7/16/768 as well. Primarily because that's what the Apple Store had in stock. I definitely wanted the 16GB of RAM and the biggest SSD. Wasn't sure about the 2.7ghz processor, but what was another $250? We also get a little discount through Apple with our business. No sales tax in our market. And a tax write off to boot. Love it. No regrets. No 'issues'. No problems. I absolutely love this computer. My wife has the 2.3/256.
    Congrats on your rig, and don't worry. If it was right for you, you've got nothing to worry about.

    2.7/16/512 Plus Applecare, no sales tax, less than $3K USD - 25% off from an employee discount that a friend of mine kindly gave to me :) Thought about getting the bigger SSD but couldn't justify the price increase.

    I got the 2.6Ghz/16GB/512GB model. I didn't think the 2.7GHz and the 768GB drive were worth it for what I wanted it for. The 2.6GHz is a bit more powerful than the iMac this rMBP replaced, so that was my main requirement. And the 512GB is plenty since I keep all my heavy media (movies, tv shows etc.) on external drives attached to my Airport.

    Not quite. Went for the 2.6/16/768 (day after launch). Over here that's NZ$5600 which sounds more to me... :) Great machine though. Just spent a weekend on the beach in Port Douglas (Queensland) for the solar eclipse, no-one even noticed I wasn't at work for a week... :D

    Not me, I think the price for for the larger SSD is outrageous and well outside of my budget. I opted for the base unit with 16gb of ram. I'm very happy with the choices I made, the maxed out rMBP is too expensive for me.

    I myself like upgrading every year to the next MacBook Pro. I don't mind spending $2-500 a year for the next models.

    I sell my old MacBook Pros on Kijiji and usually never take a huge loss. Buying a max specced RMBP would be very hard to sell as the price is way too high to sell on Kijiji properly. Just do the upgrades you NEED for 1 year at a decent price and sell it later for next years model. ^_^
