    Do you guys expect the new RMBP price to stay the same or will it increase?

    I just bought a 13" RMBP last week and if the new one comes tomorrow I'll probably just return it since I'm still in the 2 week return time.

    I would be shocked if a similarly spec'd model went up in price. I would guess maybe same price with better specs (like a RAM or storage bump) or lower price on base models with same RAM and storage as now just with a CPU bump.

    I'd expect the same prices but the base model bumped to 8GB RAM.

    Or they could always drop the 13" down to 2 models, with storage being the main differentiator. But I'd doubt that as the 15" models look to be doing the RAM bump thing.

    There is a good change the 2014 rMBPs will be released tomorrow. The change is a 200hz bump in CPU speed...likely for the same prices as 2013 models.

    New ones announced

    Minimum 8gb ram in 13 and 16gb ram in 15 models, In england they all got a price drop of £100 except high end 15 inch that got a £200 price drop. All processors got a 200mhz speed bump.

    now Apple have dropped the price of the rMBP i have a BIG dilemma, for the same price as a Macbook Air (with university discount) i can now get a rMBP with 2.8Ghz i5, 16GB Ram and 256GB SSD for £1,237.20. I was thinking about waiting for a rMBA but now i don't know :confused: any advice?

    Based on what Apple has been doing, I wouldn't be surprised to a small spec bump and a small price reduction.
