It was released almost 6 months ago. It was announced in October of last year and began shipping on Nov 30th. However it shipped in such limited quantities due to manufacturing challenges with new design elements that it only seems like it was released in early 2013.I thought it was only released a few months ago?
This kinda shows up one of the problems in the buying guide's rating system. On their criteria, they're absolutely right. Haswell processors should be coming out in the next few months, Apple will almost certainly do a revision to accommodate them and there's likely to be a couple of other spec bumps too. So if you buy now there's likely to be a better model out in the not too distant future.I thought it was only released a few months ago?
