Hi guys. Looking to get a new MBP soon but the buyers guide suggests not to. Something about possibly non retina MBP being discontinued? Was wondering if I could get some advice. Thanks.

Is it the non-rMBP that you are thinking of getting?
If not, why is it important if it gets discontinued or not?
There is no significant upgrade due to the rMBP it had a major upgrade only a few months ago.

Yes. Looking for the non rMBP. Cheaper and it's good enough for me. I'm thinking the buyers guide shouldn't matter much unless there was going to be a better MBP released soon at the same price as the current one. Then I would be willing to wait

I don't think Apple will release any new classic (non-retina) MBP. At some point in the near future whey will only offer retinas I think. But I am with you, Leo, I think the classic has a lot to go for especially being user upgradeable.

I doubt they will update it. At this point it's been almost two years.

So either get the non-retina before it goes away, find it refurbished, or choose a different model. The MacBook Air is a good choice for the price conscious and non-feature driven.
