    Hey all,
    I was reading mac rumors front page where they state :
    "Both configurations come with a quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB memory, and Intel Iris Pro Graphics cards, with the higher-end 2.5GHz model gaining expected boosts in flash storage and memory."

    So the standard 15 inch rMBP will have slower flash memory than the model with the ATI Radeon? that doesnt make much sense and also on the apple website it doesnt show any difference in flash storage when comparing the two 15 inch models.

    After reading the information on apple's website. There's a 2x on the 13" and 2.5" on the 15" model. In the description they only say 15 inch model. But below they say that the test was done using a 2.5ghz model vs a 2.5ghz model of last year.

    So who knows.

    It seems that they state this for the 15 inch model. So that is both of them.

    However in most use case sequential read/writes mean nothing, unless you are constantly writing huge files to disk the few seconds here or there will mean nothing to you.
