    That´s the point!

    I bought the last June my MBP 13inch with 8 GB RAM - 750 GB - i7 2,90 Ghz + AppleCare.

    I could sell my MBP for 1200€ I paid almost 1800€ but I have serious doubts about buying the new one.

    Is it worthy? I would buy it with 256 SSD.

    Any advices??

    Thanks and sorry about my english:)

    No, save your money and get an SSD for your current MBP. Only reason I see to get it, is if you need to HAVE the retina display.

    save your money and buy SSD and RAM if you haven't already. Don't fall for the retina frenzy.
    High Def displays is the way things are heading so you'll be better off keeping your actual MBP for a little longer and then switch to retina when things are better defined hardware wise and they worked out the issues. People are acting almost like if this our only chance ever to get a MBP with retina display because they'll disappear from the face of the Earth anytime. They are making millions of these machines, so no rush, think before you spend.


    no, same hardware.

    Anyone is stupid for buying a spec'd out 13 for a base 15

    I have the 13 inch mbp and everytime I open it up I feel like I'm in the 1990's coming from a rmbp. The screen and thinness makes a huge difference.
