I know, it's not new. It still annoys me. I'm interested in buying a 13" rMBP. I'd like 8 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage, but for some reason, I can't upgrade the $1499 model to 512 GB of storage, I have to buy the next tier up with the 2.6 GHz Core i5, which I don't give a damn about, in order to be able to get 512 GB at all. Don't tell me the 2.4 GHz Core i5 can't handle the awesomeness of the 512 GB SSD I'm sure it's just so they can get an extra $100 out of me... but is there something I'm missing? Even more annoying is that Intel's price for both the i5-4258U (2.4 GHz) and i5-4288U (2.6 GHz) is supposedly $342, so one wonder why 1) Intel sells both, who would buy the 2.4 GHz unit for the same price as the 2.6 GHz, and 2) why Apple charges $100 extra. "Because they can" I know, I know... forgive my ranting. But like I said, if there's something I'm missing, I'm genuinely interested to learn.
