    I knew the SSD would be fast as Apple touted as much, but this is really really fast:

    Who makes your 1TB?

    System Information>SATA> read off the model #

    I think its that 4 channel speed boost coupled with larger capacity mild speed bump.

    Good stuff though, that's awesome.

    Nice!

    How do you like the new machine? I have the same max spec'd one on order right now to replace my mid-2010 MBP.

    Shows "APPLE SSD SM1024G" ... Does that tell you something? SM is maybe Samsung?

    SM is indeed samsung, the preferred drive for capacities that apple sources from multiple vendors.

    assumed that's what it would be too :D

    Its probably Samsung's 3D NAND. Very exited about similar tech coming from competitors!

    - I don't know about the rMBP's SSD, but Samsung uses 3D NAND in their current 850 Pro and 850 EVO, so it very much is "out". :)

    Wow, is that almost 50% faster than the 1TB 15" (Mid 2014)?

    Update--didn't realize that speed test was a free app. I only get around 900GB/s read and write on my 1 TB. I guess it is more than 50% faster...Oh, Apple makes me feel bad about my purchase sooner and sooner after I make it...

    I was paying for the extra storage really, not faster storage necessarily. The SSD is much faster than even what Apple claims and charges for, so that is unexpected. Twice as fast as touted write speeds and a little faster for reads.

    ----------

    It's very fast and everything I was hoping for and then some (like the faster than expected SSD). I can see this being quite adequate for my uses for at least a few years .....

    So now do you wait like 0.001s less time when opening apps?

    Sure you won't notice a differance there, but if you're actually doing something data heavy (like working with video, etc) it actually makes a differance.

    I wish my rMBP had a faster SSD.

    Here is from my 2015 2.7/8GB/256GB also samsung ssd:

    faster SSD helps in every way! Especially when you go from deep sleep to hibernation and back. Great for writing out to disk when out of memory. Great for apps such as video editing as well even though the dual core processor is less ideal than a quad core.

    4-lane PCIe for sure. Now I'm starting to wish I had an early 2015.

    $2.5k, actually.

    Edit: Damn $2.7k. I haven't paid that amount since my 17-in HP back in 2005...

    The BTO maxed-out one with 1 TB SSD, 3.1 i7, and 16 GB RAM.

    I never bothered pricing the BTO models. $2700 plus tax for a dual-core processor, 13 inch non QHD display and an integrated Iris Graphics 6100 GPU? Oh my...

    ??

    It's a great machine. Why would you pick on someone else's buying decision?

    And it has more pixels than a QHD screen. QHD = 2560x1440. The 13" is 2560x1600.

    Part of the reason that configuration is so expensive is the 1 TB SSD. It's only an option on the $1800 model and costs an extra $500 on top of that. On the baseline 15" it would cost $800 more to get the 1 TB, $500 more on the $2500 model.

    Also, the display is a QHD (2560x1600).

    I don't doubt it's a great machine, but admittedly the CPU upgrade is kind of pointless. If someone actually has need for the more powerful CPU they can get a 15" rMBP with quad-core and a 1 TB SSD for only $100 more. If they go for a refurb it can cost even less.
