Why did Apple drop the Intel i7 option...?

Well, after looking over the spec for the next rMBP 13" and iMac update. I can't help but feel underwhelmed by the "new" specs. However, I noticed that there is no longer an option for a i7 Intel chip for the rMBP 13" or the new iMac...

Why would Apple do this?

Actually there is an option to upgrade to an i7 2.9 Ghz chip for $200 extra dollars. Check the store.
