I've been in the market for a new machine in a while - sold my first generation retina 13 as it wasn't powerful enough for my needs and I need the quad that is in the 15. Been waiting for the early 2014 refresh with a view to getting the retina 16GB and 512GB SSD 15". I plan to use the 1920x1200 resolution with the retina screen. Today I noticed that Apple have got 2012 15" anti glare with a resolution of 1680x1050, the benefit is I can add my own SSD and upgrade the RAM myself. Difference on the current model: Retina is lighter. Retina is more powerful 10800 vs 12000 geekbench. Retina has larger resolution. Retina has better graphics? Retina has longer battery life. Retina has soldered RAM. Retina is £500 more expensive - what are the chances of a price decrease and what is being expected from the early 2014 refresh? So far I can only see some clock speed improvements.
