    I was excited when I saw the 27" non retina was starting at $1799 but its limited to an older i5 and you don't even get the same price breaks you get on the retina.....actually makes more sense to get the retina....which you can get with a 256 ssd and 4ghz i7 for only $2799 the non retina isn't much less and your still topped off at 3.5 i7

    If you top off some/most options, it looks like 400 dif give or take.

    Apple is also charging $200 less for the 1TB flash drive in the Retina iMac than for the same drive in the non-Retina iMac.

    Too bad they didn't put the new i7 and M295x into the non retina.

    Nope.

    The non-Retina starts from a base of a 1TB HDD: it's +$200 for a 1TB fusion, or +$1000 for a 1TB flash.

    The Retina starts from a base of a 1TB fusion, hence the upgrade price of $800 for 1TB flash.
