Looking at the new mbp, the pricing and specs make it a pretty lousy alternative to the retina mbp imo. It just doesn't make sense given i really want a ssd. But just glancing over the refurbished site, they have a 2.3 i7 w/ 128gb ssd w/ 4 gb ram for $1699. Just wondering if you guys would still pick a $2200 retina pro over that configuration. I would be buying this mainly to use with digital performer, which from reading forums at motu nation, it doesn't seem that the retina display has any real impact on the program.
