Why on earth would anyone buy a (non-retina) Macbook Pro???

replaceable parts
built in cd/dvd drive

* Non-Retina Display
* Slow HDD Standard, and SATA 3 Instead of PCIe
* Outdated CPU & GPU
* Thicker, Heavier
* Worse Battery Life

Which still makes me wonder why anyone would buy one.

An external superdrive. Not that most people would want to burn CDs on the go in 2015... o_O

In 2012, I could certainly see the appeal of the cMBP. There was a significant price premium for the 13" rMBP at the time, the CPU/GPU were the same, and an SSD would perform similarly between both while the cMBP was upgradeable.

3 years later, the age has caught up with it. A 13" rMBP is not much more expensive, especially with buying from resellers, the GPU/CPU are noticeable faster, and the new PCIe SSDs will smoke anything you could put in the cMBP. You also get the benefits of the form factor, weight and retina display. I love upgradability, but it's simply not enough of an advantage now, IMO.

I bought one last year because of hard drive space. I got a 500GB MacBookPro for $1000. The similar Flash drive space for a Retina model has a price of $1800.

That's huge. Honestly is Apple doesn't provide a more reasonable pricesd laptop with good HDD space, I will be switching back to Windows when I buy a new computer in a year or two.

If you're unfortunate enough to be traveling over the Holidays, do check out those Best Buy airport kiosks. Last year, Santa bought several iPad Mini 2's for about $220 each. Not a bad deal at the time, but I'd hope they get under two bills this year. Point is, the kiosks had Black Friday pricing.

"Best Buy stores in the U.S. will open at 5:00 PM on Thursday, November 26"

I refuse to shop at a store that succumbs to the mind numbing holiday shopping hysteria and opens on Thanksgiving.

or will it be the SS and link band combo that cost over $1,000.

The most expensive Watch Best Buy sells is the 42mm Milanese Loop that retails for $699.

What, spend twice as much as you would on a console, for tech from 2012, and get a 10th of the performance?

Somehow I look at your avatar saying and then read your post, something doesn't add up.

Precisely what is wrong with my "avatar saying"? That I'm thinking different than the mindless drones who shop until they pass out, even though many of them are racking up tons of debt in the process?

darn right! People can't think for themselves. We need blue laws so nobody can shop on Sundays (like not too long ago) and we should force merchants not to open when we deem it improper. Give people too much freedom and there will be coed dances next! Mark my words. /s

Exactly! We shouldn't protect these low-income employees from heartless companies that make them come in and work on a holiday instead of being with their family. I mean really, who deserves a day off during a national holiday anyway? Not poor people. Especially not a holiday like this one—the first one founded in this land to give thanks for what we have. We shouldn't be thankful at all and just buy buy buy until we all pass out. Rampant consumerism always wins. Screw Thanksgiving, this is the true American way! /s

Consider yourself marked all right…more like marred. The density on display here is approaching neutron star. I take it you've never been forced to work a shift on Thanksgiving, because I have and it's literally worse than Hitler. I'm so thankful that I no longer have to do that and am in a position to vote with my dollars and try to persuade those among my friends, family and coworkers to not participate in this ridiculous game.

RAM/HDD are the only replaceable parts, and were you to upgrade it to an SSD, you get an SSD 3 times quicker with the rMBP anyway due to PCI-e & quicker Flash. More RAM as standard and quicker RAM in the rMBP. USB ODD costs pennies.

I witnessed somebody do a BTO on the 13" MBP to a 256GB SSD, just cause they wanted an internal ODD. Wouldn't take no for an answer. And they didn't want to upgrade to SSD themselves because they weren't comfortable doing it, plus they wanted all parts warranted by Apple. For just £10 more they could've got the 256GB rMBP, which has quicker Flash, better display, thinner, 3 hours better battery life, double the RAM, quicker RAM, better CPU and better GPU. That hurt to witness. Physically hurt.

I will probably be upgrading my 500HDD to 1 TB model in the next few weeks. To get the same HDD space in a rMBP it is $2300 (1TB).
The rMPB is a great machine but I would like to see them continue to update the standard model for people that want a good computer but lots of storage. How else am I supposed to store all those Live Photos?
