    I bought a bog standard 13" rMBP two weeks ago, with the refresh yesterday should I exchange my macbook to get the slightly better processor and the 8gb (double the ram)

    No. If your machine worked for you two weeks ago, it will work for you now. The new one is indistinguishable for the overwhelming majority of people.

    I'm on the same boat, bought a refurbished 13" retina 8/256 last Monday. Because of the speed bump the same refurbished macbook I bought is now a little cheaper, I called apple and will be getting $85 credit back from them for the price match. I'm just keeping mine, 200ghz bump is irrelevant.

    The problem is as its like 16 days old so I'm out of the 14 days and I was quite close to buying the model above this one.

    You said you bought it two weeks ago. If you bought it over 14 days ago I don't think Apple will let you exchange it anymore (at least not without paying a restocking fee), but it doesn't hurt to try. Just be sure to ask nicely and politely as that seems to work best with them. If they won't exchange it maybe they will offer you a credit or gift card?

    I've called apple as a "exception" they have already me to exchange it however due to me buying it educationally they have to collect it. But the only way they can do it is through them refunding me then allowing me to buy the new one, I have no idea why I have to do it this way. But it means I'm going to be without a mac for about a week due to 3-5 processing refund and then the delivery time of about 2 days.

    If you paid full retail price for the 2013 base model (4/128), then yes I would at least try to exchange it for the new base model (8/128). It's basically 4GB of extra ram for free.

    If you got the 4/128 on discount or sale of some sort, then I would keep what you have and be happy. I have the 4/128 and it's great.
