    I'm going to sell my 2 months old 2012 MBP 13" and but the 15" 2.7 Ghz with anti glare screen.
    I used it yesterday for half hour at the Apple store and the anti glare screen brought some memories back, I remembered my old 15" core 2 duo..

    Why 2.7GHz and not use the 2.6GHz and save some $$ for RAM or bigger drive?

    I already have a large SSD and RAM ready to be mounted. I'm going to sell my 13" with owc 16 GB ram and samsung 830 128 Gb.

    That extra 2MB L3 will come in handy:rolleyes:
    My 2.6 is pretty cool when operating. Hopefully the 2.7 is no hotter.

    also full SATA III support in optic bay is something that I've been looking for
    the instability of the 13" in that regard bugged me a lot lately :(

    :confused: There is no 13" retina model available. But I agree in thinking 2.7 is more of a waste of money.

    yes is the top of the line MBP 13" with i7 2.9 Ghz. I've installed 16 Gb of OWC Ram and a Samsung SSD 830 128 Gb.

    I need a larger screen and little more firepower and being able to mount a second SSD so I can use the new MBP for my graphic design and video editing.

    I would seriously not waste money on the .1 upgrade. Save it for a bigger SSD or just something else entirely. You will not notice an an ounce of difference between 2.6 and 2.7.

    I agree, 2.7 GHz is really a waste of money.

    yes but in the optibay is unstable and you can only install a HDD to have it working while a SSD would have erratic performance. And that's a bummer!

    I totally agree with you, but when someone is this hot for a sexy new laptop do you really think you can change their mind with logic?

    2.7ghz upgrade is a complete waste of money. 2.6ghz is the best option IMO. That's what I got.

    I've searched and read all I could find on the subject and the conclusion is always the same:
