First gen retina pros barely kept pace with the resolution


Lol @ future proof

Barely kept pace with resolutions? Who's offering as much as they are?

Nothing with apple is future proof.

Then why are people able to use their macbooks for like 6 years?

I like Apple's deal better. $200 off for college students and you get a $100 apple gift card.


Nope think about it. Even if you were right, which you are not, best buy gives a 300 dollar, better than the gift card option. CMBPs get a 100 dollar discount in the U.S max.

Why save money if it is on dad's credit card right?
It's so last year:D


What a ridiculous assumption. You know nothing about him.

You interpreted his post wrong. The retinas have an underpowered GPU powering them.

I can still 'use' my Windows 95 machine. Doesn't mean anything.

Wait for updates before buying these obsolete machines.

I am so glad I saw this. I am literally starting school Monday, and I have my iMac for sale on eBay. I was going to take the $750ish NET I'll likely clear and buy a 2012 MBA out of the Apple Refurb store for $799. But for $900 @ Best Buy... I am going for the cMBP instead! Better deal!


Not really.

Shorter battery life, bigger, heavier etc.

You do get a CD slot for all those CDs that people still rip...

Is that stuff user upgradable? I bit the bullet and picked up my cMBP last night and there is no access doors. I am not about to tear this thing apart.

ifixit.com is a great resource as well. I used it to guide me through all my upgrades.

You're forgetting a major advantage if the cmbp:
Being able to upgrade ram to 16gb and to a ssd in the future for super cheap=priceless.


That's the first time I've heard the term "super cheap" used to describe an SSD. Do you mean in 10 years?
