Interestingly, the estimated $500 price premium for the Retina version of the 13-inch MacBook Pro compares to a $400 premium on the entry-level 15-inch Retina versus non-Retina models. The higher-level 15-inch configuration carries a $600 price premium over its non-Retina counterpart due to the significantly more expensive 512 GB flash storage included with the machine.

It looks the same as the regular one, anybody?
And honestly I don't think an Intel 4000 won't be able to handle this, since it can barley handle the 15-inch.


Too costly and a boring product. Not even SSD or flash storage.

What are we, in the Dark ages
Yawn.

Are you guys really that ignorant?

Where in the article does it discuss the specs? You know the pics in the article are of the current models, right?
