    Yeah. I had never seen any "the verge" content before this and was surprised with the lack of clear, annunciated delivery.

    "If you have the money to spend, this is the best laptop you can buy right now." $2200 is an insane amount to pay for a notebook this day and age. To put it into perspective, I can buy everything in my signature and still have $750 left over versus buying the base model MacBook Pro with Retina!

    Your point?...your stuff is less than a regular 15" MBP too. The Pro computers has also cost more than their consumer electronics/computers, presumably for the performance as well as the brand.

    Anyone else find the passive aggressive tone in the review annoying? Here's a couple: "Regardless of your feelings towards Apple generally" as well as "The MacBook Pro with Retina display is already a decent value in its first generation — for an Apple computer, anyhow"

    Eh, it's a fair cop. Apple's laptops have been expensive for their component price for a long time, largely because of all the extra work making them thin. Contrast with the Mini, which is a really nice deal for what you get.

    Yeah, I should have clarified a bit. From everything I've seen, excluding special sales/coupons, Apple's laptops are priced competitively when compared with other laptops with similar specs.
