    Haswell is going to be a small move forward in power and a moderate move forward in lower power consumption and integrated graphics.

    It just doesn't grab my attention...

    21 days old. I just missed the 14 day return window due to the nature of the unresolved problem with my 15" MBP retina.

    It's got the runaway fan speed problem that Apple is silent on. Even as the 25 page thread of users grows at the Apple.com community forum. Our diagnosis seems to isolate the SanDisk SSD equipped models only.

    Therefore leaving buyers hanging in the wind... wondering if it will resolved or not.

    Will it require hardware repairs?

    We it simply be a software update?

    Have we wasted our money?

    What I _ do _ know is mine has become worse & worse to the point of completely interrupting my work flow.

    It's not Haswell I want, it's simply a desire to get what I paid for. A new MBPr that works as it should.

    Apple has seriously begun to fail in their quality control responsibilities.

    ----------

    So quick to judge....

    Hmm…now I think of it, it would be interesting to cross-reference “How old is your computer?” with “Do you plan to upgrade to Haswell when it comes out?”

    You know that saying about mountains and molehills?

    For the record, I'm affected (512gb Sandisk) and the fan has kicked in unnecessarily perhaps 5 times in 3 weeks of ownership. Maybe if it affected battery life or happened more frequently I might be more bothered. Wait for the SMC update and quit fussing.

    So a fan interrupts your workflow? Seriously? You must get distracted ridiculously easy then.

    I probably wont entertain upgrading until I get a good hands on with a machine that has it on board. Also depends on what else Apple decides to change/upgrade besides the processor.

    Plus my machine is still extremely new, but Apples resale value is so good that I'd consider upgrading if the changes were in fact very much to my liking.
    We shall see...

    It's a banner day for the know it alls.

    You act like just because yours rarely does it you have all the answers. Well you've failed.

    The problem? Go look in the mirror. :D

    While reading your post, my fan randomly kicked into high gear.

    There's a lesson about karma in here somewhere, but I can't be bothered to get off my high horse and find it.

    Haven't decide yet… which means I'll be upgrading the first day it's released.

    Twenty eight pages later:
    https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4735947?start=0&tstart=0

    This fan racing problem has finally hit the mainstream blogosphere. The front page of MacRumors, Apple insider and others.

    Here's hoping Apple does the right thing and takes care of this problem that I get reminded of every day as the fans go crazy for no apparent reason on my late 15" 2012 MBPr equipped with the SanDisk SSD.

    It is the same SSD that 99% of the others have reported as having in their brand new MBP retina models.

    I'm planning on replacing my early 2011 MBP. That one will be handed down to my girlfriend.

    I'm holding out for Broadwell (Late 2011 currently) and hoping for 17" to make a comeback :)
