    Currently have a early 2013 rmbp with the entry level 2.4 ghz i7 and I'm comparing it to the current entry level 2.2 ghz i7 ($1999 model). Both state turbo boost to 3.4 ghz so as of the processor is one better than the other? Kind of confused about that...

    As of SSD they are the same, but I gain 16GB memory as it is now standard as well as force touch track pad.

    any feedback is appreciated, thank you

    There aren't many differences in terms of hardware between the two machines except for the graphics card. The 2013 uses an nvidia 750m and the 2015 uses the amd M370X. In terms of the processor, the 2015 model has the faster processor even if the frequency is slightly slower because the newer one is haswell versus (i think) ivy bridge.

    Ok great thanks for the info. I was concerned about it going from 2.4 to 2.2 but i was sure it was due to a more efficient chip.

    The SSD on the 2015 MacBook Pro is insanely fast. The other thing you gain on the 2015 MacBook Pro is the new force touch trackpad vs the hinged trackpad.

    Not worth it this year, you will be better off leaving it until the skylake update before upgrading.

    Yeah i know but the reason for this thread is because apple may be replacing it with the 2015. The timing sucks but oh well it will still be a newer machine!

    Do you guys think there will be any kind of major redesign for the skylake..and the possibility of it having more than 256gb SSD standard?

    I honesty don't think that there will be a major redesign for Skylake. If you can wait then wait and see.

    If apple replace it you get a computer 2 1/2 years newer, accept it graciously as next year you will be out of warranty and will get nothing.
