If it isn't replaced by a retina version of the 13" MBP by then (if the rumours are correct that is). We'll know when Apple releases it (they are a blackbox company so there is no way of telling before)
you probably also have to take into account the cost of putting that much ram in by the time it is 2014 too.
Hopefully this happens soon. I love my air but the only mistake I made when I ordered it was not upgrading the ram to 8GB, This was my first MBA and I am used to upgrading the ram in my computers later on after purchasing.
I'd suggest that is accurate. 2014 rMBP should be able to take 32GB at least (if apple are sane), as the chipset can handle it, and by then 32GB should be available in the same number of chips that 16GB is now. Obviously it will be $$$ but this is a pro machine, right?
the cost of 16GB these days is peanuts.
You know the 13" rMBP doesn't have an option of 16GB, right?Not in the near future - Apple is pushing the Air as the entry level laptop and the retina as the powerhouse that has stuff like 16GB of RAM Eventually it will, though.
