Guacho says:

is the 1299 model the same non retina 13" ? I guess the price went up..

miwaca says:

Nope. $1200 gets you Retina. :)

MrLogan says:

It's the 13" Retina MBP.

Solamar says:

All retina are PCIe and Thunderbolt 2 now.

Guacho says:

thanks, how about the non retina 13" pro??

cctpitts01 says:

why would they still be updating the non retina MBP?

Guacho says:

the 15" non retina is dead....13' still around but not for too long, too bad the RAM is not user upgradable on the newer ones...

Solamar says:

Non-retina is dead.. not even a footnote.. It's gone from the online Apple Store.

J/K. :)

It is there, but price point wise, not a big gap.. and you get the same horse power out of the Air really. Bought a new Air for my mom, thing freaking rocks.. really, Apple is moving away from spindle disk HDD and CD/DVD. I'm honestly surprised it's still for sale at all.

miwaca says:

I think it's finally time to update my 2011 MBP.

cctpitts01 says:

So am i right in saying that Apple just got rid of the nvidia GPU's :( looks like no more gaming on MBPR anymore :(

IMokwithAT says:

The higher end base 15" comes with the NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M
with 2GB GDDR5 memory.

cctpitts01 says:

Sweet! Thanks i just saw that. :)

Nathan Bael says:

Still, the 750m isn't exactly stunning and in order to get it you have to pay a ridiculous amount extra. What I don't understand is why, if I'm reading it right, the best IRIS GPU is also coupled with the Nvidia GPU. This would mean the lower end 15 is not only missing a discrete GPU, but is also using a lower version of the Intel GPU. Am I reading the description correctly on the website?

z3on says:

I'm so happy I didn't buy the Air but decided to wait for the new MPB's, the price cut makes this even better :)

impaler says:

Me likey. Me want. $1299 is doable, considering my Air screen is jacked up and out of warranty. I know I'll never go non-retina again, though, after looking at this.

MAGNUS says:

So no more Non Retinas?

SMulji says:

The non-retina 13" MBP is still around. The 15" is dead.
