is the 15" new rMBP also thinner than last gen, or only the 13"?

    The 15in was thinner than the 13in so now the 13in matches the 15in.

    Nope. The reason the 13-inch got thinner is because it was previously thicker than the 15. So Apple reduced the thickness to match the 15.

    The 13" rMBP got thinner? :eek:

    Good thing I haven't started looking for cases/etc yet.

    By a whopping 0.04 inches.

    I think Apple gets kickbacks from the case makers. They are all wringing their hands.

    15'' weight is the same, there is no "1lb lighter". Why do I know this? The new Haswell 15'' Macbook Pro is 4.46 pounds versus the Dell XPS 15's 4.44 pounds. Dell is 0.02 lighter, but with the same machined aluminum with carbon fiber....
