I was just thinking: The Macbook Pro retina is very expensive because of cutting-edge tech (display, large SDD). I'm guessing Apple is keeping the old macbook pro design precisely because of the cost issue. It seems likely that as the tech matures, prices will fall drastically towards the normal Macbook Pro level. Wouldn't this mean that the resale value MBP retina will fall comparatively fast as well? Just a thought.
