$1,499 13", 2.0 GHz, 540 graphics, 8 GB, 256 GB, 2 ports (DOWNGRADE from last year's model of same price; 2.0 GHz for $1,499 is robbery) $300 upgrade to marginally usable 2.4 GHz CPU, 540 graphics (same price as the Touch Bar $1,799 model, with weaker CPU, weaker iGPU, less ports -- if you buy this, you are an idiot) Basically the $1,499 model is un-purchasable. $1,799 13", 2.9 GHz, 550 graphics, 8 GB, 256 GB, 4 ports (same RAM/SSD as 2013 rMBP at the same price; Where is Moore's law?) To add more damage, this is year 2016 with like 1/3 price of RAMs and SSDs compared to 2013, and they still charge $200 for 8 GB -> 16 GB, $200 for 256 GB -> 512 GB. Both 8 GB RAM and 256 GB SSDs can be bought for less than $50 outside Apple. Seriously Apple? You make us wait over 500 days and bring us a downgrade for the same price. The base rMBP at $1,499 is not purchasable, practically raising the price levels of rMBP by three hundred ****ing dollars. Good job. Much better value for the money to just grab 2015 rMBP at a discounted price. Thanks.
