    The recently updated 13 inch rMBP is a lot cheaper then it's pre-model.
    How much should the pre-model be at least cheaper then it's current to buy it?

    For ex. suppose the pre-model is offerted for 100 dollar/euro less, would you then buy the 'older' model or buy the updated one?

    Via the apple website, the 2.5 is 'only' 200 euro less and it seems like more is changed then only the cpu

    It's an incredibly minor CPU bump. That's all.

    I went over this with about 3 people from Apple, and my brother who's really up on this stuff...As per everyone, I was told its extremely minor. And the Apple people said for me to basically just roll with the 2012 if I'm getting a really good price on it...Which I did, $1,414 for my 2012 rMBP with 128GB.
    Either way...I really like the machine and understand that within no time at all whatever you buy will be outdated sooner rather then later. Vicious Cycle!

    I just got my rMBP with 256 for 1,419.99 from Amazon brand new. Would have been 1,519.99 but my brother in law works there and I got 100$ off, couldn't pass the deal up.
