I am planning on getting a 15" rMBP for the new school year. I was hoping that the Haswell rMBPs would be released today, but unfortunately that was not the case. I've been reading and am asking myself, is it worth waiting? I can wait until October-November, I can use an older laptop, but rumors say at least for the 15 inch there will only be small improvements. The CPU will apparently be 10% faster or so, but versions with Iris Pro will run slower than the ones without it. I'd like to be able to play some games and I'd much prefer a discrete nvidia chip over intel graphics, as I've heard that intel graphics will still be slower than the GT650/750M, plus I can over clock the nvidia chips. Originally I thought that it was pretty much certain that the rMBP would be getting a discrete gpu, but after WWDC not so much. As others have already said, the HD4600 versions are already available, but the 5200 not so much. Maybe apple is waiting for the 5200, because if they were going the discrete gpu route they could have released it today. Based on what the rumors say and what I've gathered, it appears that on the refurb store, I can get a rMBP and get the same performance plus more ram and storage space for 10 dollars cheaper. For $2189 (originally $2799?) now I can get a 2012 rMBP with: 2.6ghz proccessor 16gb ram GT650m 512gb ssd If I waited and assuming apple kept similar specs for $2199 I'd be getting this: 2.4ghz haswell proccessor 8gb ram GT750/760/Intel Iris Pro 256gb SSD I'm only willing to wait if the new model will bring better performance than what I can get today for the same price Would the higher clocked ivy bridge plus the fact that the cpu doesn't have to handle graphics (if it didn't have a discrete gpu) make up for the speedier Haswell processors? Is Iris Pro really faster than a 650m that has been overclocked by apple, plus further by me? How likely is it now that the rMBP will be getting a discrete gpu, and will there be any significant performance gains if it does? Is it really worth waiting?
