    I bought a late 2013 13" 2.6/8/256

    After the 2014 updates, I see the mid level MBPr 13" is 2.6/8/256


    I'm guessing they are exactly the same. I guess I am safe for another year before mine becomes out dated :)

    Right now the 13" 2.4 GHz models are out.

    They are the same, though the 2014 i5 is a slightly newer CPU.

    2013 CPU
    2014 CPU

    And your machine is already obsolete anyway.

    No you're wrong it's the same as the 2014 model which is current

    Not quite, the new one has a newer haswell processor than yours, the differences are minimal, but they're there.

    They have different part numbers, but the only real difference is that the 2013 CPU has a slightly faster GPU clock.

    Ups, I was going of this information and then searched for the CPUs used in both models and then came to that Intel Ark website, which had differing information, but I still linked to it. I guess I should contact Intel about that hiccup on their website.

    2013 model
    2014 model

    Please forgive me.

    I wonder why they would slow it down?!?

    Because the 4278U(2.6GHz, released in 2014) is the low end processor in the group and the 4288U(2.6GHz, released in 2013) is a midrange processor in the group.
