    Let's make a separate topic for this important issue:

    Where is the Iris Pro in the 15" new Macbook Pro? Nothing and nowhere is mentioned an integrated GPU.

    If there is none, then either:

    1. The GPU (AMD RADEON) is very battery efficient
    2. The battery is big enough to cover the battery usage.

    So, who got some thoughts?

    Thank you for starting this topic.

    That point and no 32gb option were the most confusing aspects of the launch to me.

    I'm really bummed about this, the Iris Pro 580 graphics was the thing I was most looking forward to.

    This move makes the dGPU more important. I think they would like us all to buy the 460 4 GB option.

    I was planning to get a 15" with integrated graphics... battery-life is far more important to me than graphics performance. Can't figure out if the Polaris chip makes the battery issue moot, or Apple just screwed me... :confused:
