Hi everyone, I recently purchased a 13" rMBP with a 2.5 i5/8gb/128 SSD. I found a good price while this was on sale along with an additional education discount at Best Buy. I'm coming from a mid-2009 MBP so this new model seems amazingly fast to me. I'm not too worried about the next release... I know there will always be something new coming at some point. I don't necessarily need the absolute fastest thing out there with the applications I usually work with - and the speed of the current rMBP with the SSD is amazing compared to what I am used to! The retina screen is also amazing to me compared to the old one. I haven't had any issues at all, and the build quality was perfect with no issues. One question - I checked the serial number on the "chipmunk" site and it shows a manufacturing date of week 27 2013. This would be sometime during the first week of this current month. Is this site usually accurate? I have checked other macs this way and the manufacture date always looked about right. http://www.chipmunk.nl/klantenservice/applemodel.html Has anyone else recently purchased on of these? I'd be curious what the manufacture date shows. Does a recent manufacture date of this model point to a later release of the next gen MBP?
