    Now hoping I didn't mess up. Will be heading out of town on the 30th for a week, so may have a problem if it requires a signature. Might call Apple to see if we can shift the ship-to address.... Sigh.

    13 inch base model.

    No need for anything more fancy. I still use the terminal for stuff, so I don't give a flip about processing videos, pictures, etc.

    Let me browse the web and play some iTunesy goodness, and I,m happy.

    Also wanted to save the budget to buy a new ipad air and mini.

    Will be looking for an in-stock store unit because I can't wait until Tuesday, so a tricked-out 13-inch with i5 2.6GHz/512GB/8GB RAM for $1,800. Since I spent $2,600 on my 15-inch rMBP last year, I believe I'm getting a bargain. :p :cool:

    Went for the i7 13 with 16 GB of ram and 256 GB of storage. The better CPU meant better GPU performance and that is the most important aspect for me.

    Storage is not a factor and I wanted the 13, I got the 15 last year and it's just too big, 13 is the sweet spot for me.

    You could get one of those hippy patchwork bong cases and tote it around with you instead of a laptop.

    13" Retina i7, 16GB RAM, 512GB PCI-e SSD. First new laptop since 2009, glad it is a tax write off...

    Now where did I put the box for my old machine, lol!

    I'm tempted to get the 13" rMBP, with 16GB RAM (finally 16GB RAM on the 13" !!), 256 or 512 SSD. Not sure about the CPU config yet. Is it really worth stepping up to the top end CPU option?

    I got the top 13" model with max RAM. I understand Maverick can do compressed RAM but I'll let my machine have an abundant amount of RAM before it has to get to that process.

    2.6GHz, upgraded to 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD

    I could have easily gotten the 15" but from my previous MBP experience, it's too bulky for me to carry around. I tried lifting and holding it in stores, I prefer 13". The slimmer and lighter changes are welcomed.
