    Hi Guy`s ,

    Well to make a long story not so long.

    I have looked at the MBP-R 13" and 15"

    For around 200 you get i7 plus separate ( dedicated ) GPU.

    Am I missing something ?

    Seems like a "no brainer" to go with the 15"

    Please advise me :D

    Later , Happy Holidays !! :D

    Now the rest of the story:

    I thought I would save some coin by buying a Toshiba , so I had the
    P855-S5200 > 15" >i7>8Gig`s>HD4000>750GB HDD.

    So after many sleepless nights and hours of restoring ( plus trying to learn W-7 , after a 20+ year hiatus ).

    The mother board fried ! No BIOS , No Boot Manager , was the last error I got in the BIOS screen.

    Tried a new HDD and booting from my W-7 ISO disc , but nada , no BIOS.

    So , BB was very understanding of my problem and was only about 2 weeks outside my return window , so I received "store credit" for a busted "Toshi"

    I guess someone was [ is ] trying to tell me something , something I already know , but must have had a mental failure !! LOL

    U get what U pay 4 !!

    Cudos to BB for helping me out of a jam.

    I agree. You have to *really* want the smaller size to trade a quad-core i7, NVIDIA GPU, more screen pixels for $200.

    I've seen the base model 13" rMBP sell for $1649 and the 256GB upgraded model sell for $1799 at Fry's. At those prices it's a little more reasonable, but I agree at the 13" model is expensive!
