    Will the rmbp also be getting the minor spec numb like the MBA is rumored to get next week? If so when might it happen?

    The first two updates to the retina line came right around 250 days (8 months) after the previous version was released. Right now it's been 185 days (6 months) since the Late 2013 models came out (per the "should you buy?" page here), so chances are we could see a spec bump announced at WWDC with release in early July. The Air has settled into a June/July release schedule over the last three years, so it makes sense to see an announcement of that soon.

    Well, I'm hoping for the same slight speed bump, and maybe a minor price reduction at or before WWDC. I don't think it's unreasonable given that the new processors are available.

    I wouldn't expect any updates other than that, though.

    If it is €100 cheaper within the next 14 days just return it, get your money back and buy the cheaper one.

    There has been a price drop in NZ of around NZ$200 for the 13" and NZ$300 for the 15" Retinas.

    Just now, or some time in the past?

    2hrs drive to nearest Apple shop (and 2 hour return) - having to go back would cost me that much in fuel.

    Good spotting, didn't notice that! Now all we need is a significant spec bump and I'm ready to upgrade from my 2012...

    Is there any proof of this? I haven't noticed a spec increase...

    I just said there was a price drop for the MBP that happened at the same time as the price drop and spec bump for the MBA.

    No mention of a spec bump.

    That's an adjustment for exchange rates then, not a minor spec bump or a reduction in price across the range.

    There is no difference on the MBP's in the UK store yet.

    Regardless let's hope the minor refresh does happen as soon as possible, hopefully by early July the latest
