New photo shows faster Retina MacBook Pros with 16GB of RAM could be in the works

If you weren't satisfied with the rumors of a retina MacBook Air and a 4K desktop weren't enough for you, maybe the thought of faster Retina MacBook Pros with a standard 16GB of RAM will grab your attention. That's what a new image from Chinese forum Feng allegedly shows off, though it remains unverified by Apple.

  • 2.2GHz Intel Core i7 (Turbo Boost to 3.4GHz), 16GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, and Intel Iris Pro Graphics
  • 2.5GHz Intel Core i7 (Turbo Boost to 3.7GHz), 16GB of RAM, 512GB of storage, and Intel Iris Pro Graphics & NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M w/2GB DDR5 RAM
  • 2.8GHz Intel Core i7 (Turbo Boost to 4.0GHz), 16GB of RAM, 1TB of storage, and Intel Iris Pro Graphics NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M w/2GB DDR5 RAM

All in all, that's only a minor bump in specs over what's available now in the Retina MacBook Pro line but if it turns out to be accurate, it's not unheard of for Apple to push out those minor updates.

In any case, we'll have to wait and see what happens because again, this all remains unverified and is likely to remain that way until Apple is good and ready to announce something.

I hope this ends up being true, because I would definitely be more inclined to upgrade from my non retina MacBook if this was the base model without a huge price increase

I have my mid 2012 with a nice ssd and 16gb. It would be nice to upgrade to the retina with the option of 16gb!!!

I have the same version minus the ssd and feel the same way. Only reason I went nonretina was for upogradability without needing too pay apple prices. If the base retina model included these specs it would fit my needs perfectly.

i know that more RAM is always better, but when do we get to the land of diminishing returns when it comes to this stuff?

I personally wouldn't get a system (whether Windows or OS X) with less than 8GB in 2014. 16GB is a good choice if you're doing heavier workloads like app development or editing video.

An Nvidia GT 750M only when the 800M series is out? Lol Apple's rip off never seize to amuse me. My new Lenovo laptop has a 4K anti glare display, 16GB ram, Nvidia GT 860M, i7-4710HQ 2.5Ghz all for $1450. Suck it Apple!

Checkout the Lenovo Y series. Best bang for your buck in terms of gaming laptops, unless you want to go all out and buy a cheaper and more powerful PC.

So let's see if the bump in RAM costs significantly more than the aftermarket price of roughly $100.

Aftermarket price of $100? You can't upgrade the RAM in the rMBP, so it's Apple's price to upgrade of $200 or nothing.

It's confusing that Apple makes devices with high RAM, yet the powerful things are all on Windows.
