If so, it would be a tragedy. The MacBook Pro is the last computer left in Apple's lineup (besides the Mac mini) that can be easily user-upgradeable. The only thing you can change in the 15" Retina MacBook Pro is the SSD drive. That's it. No drive bay. No memory expansion. Proprietary SSD format. No battery replacement. I remember when SJ introduced the Unibody Pros in 2008, and touted them as being the "easiest Mac notebooks to ever upgrade" with the single bottom access panel that let you get to the battery, hard disk, memory, drive bay, and CPU fans. Call me crazy, but I just don't see why 0.3" (an barely noticeable amount) in thickness is worth all of these sacrifices. I have a MacBook Air 13" and a MacBook Pro 13". To be honest, while the Pro is doubly hefty, it's easier to hold because its thickness gives me something to grip. The thinness of the Air always makes me feel it will slip out of my hands unless I grip it tightly. I used to have a ton of respect for Jony Ive. But, after seeing his performance after one year, he's fallen into the same trap that all designers eventually do: sacrificing too much function for too little form. First with the MacBooks, then with the iMacs, then with the Mac Pro, and now, with iOS 7. I've lost faith in Apple. I have no doubt in my mind they'll continue to grow bigger. I have no doubt they'll sell products like wildfire. But, this is not the same Apple we knew from the early 2000s. We, the diehard Mac users, kept them afloat, and now they've abandoned us. I'm not going to look anywhere else except Apple, though. ThinkPads have become nothing but MacBook rip-offs, and everyone else seems to be doing the same thing. I'm really considering buying a MacBook Pro 15" in top configuration with the high-res screen for when my Air and Pro give out. When it dies, I'll just permanently switch to desktops and reluctantly switch to the tablet bandwagon.
