The new MBP does look really awesome! BTW has anyone noticed the new Airport Express? Is there any major difference about this one, compared to the older one? Or is it only a design change?..

It has an extra ethernet port so a single computer can be hard wired. And it resembles a white AppleTV.

Okay then.
I'm in too.

I have a MBP from 2006 and it's definitely time for an upgrade.

I am going to be upgrading my MacBook Pro and I thought I would go with whatever they released yesterday, but the lack of options for upgrading the hard drive or ram just dont do it for me, and does not feel like it would be something "pros" would want, that upgrade limitation.

So I am comparing the none retina MacBook Pro, the top end 15 inch, compared to the base Retina. Specs are identical save the non retina has a few more ghz. Are they the same processors though? Bothing using the new intel, or is one using the older i7 processors?

Um same processors between the regular and Retina 15", same speeds, all use the latest gen Ivy Bridge processors.

And of note... ( I had to scale it down, the original dialogue box almost filled my entire 1366x768 screen)

If it's not user upgradeable as far as hard drives go, it's not an option for me, not after spending plenty of bucks on 2 SSD's. Any upgrading will have to be any MBP but the RMBP.

The Display is better,
it might look sharper but unless you can tweak the rez you're still only getting the same useable desktop as a 1440x900 15" macbook pro which is, to me anyway, completely useless.

That is ruling out the new RMBP for me as well. Not sure why they are going a route where it takes options away, especially with basic things like hard drive and ram.

This sounds to me the Mac now needs to scale up and interpolate pixel information that doesn't exist.

Maybe I need to read up on this more.
During the Keynote they mentioned that Non-Retina optimized Apps will be Pixel Doubled by the OS. I dunno if they will make them look decent, or bearable,or what...
