    On sale today only at B&H .. $1449 .. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ...i7_2_8ghz_8gb_512ssd_13_3_retina.html/SUB/cpw

    It's last years model (3rd gen i7), but not much different than the current one.

    i7, 8Gb Ram, 512Gb SSD, Retina Display 2560 x 1600.

    personally, I would opt for a PC .. similar specs would come in under $1000 .. but if you want/need a Mac, this is a good price.

    Similar specs maybe, similar performance doubtful.

    ;)

    I had a Mac once. WAY too proprietary and not very upgradable without having to buy a whole new system.

    All in one's / laptops on any platform have never really been upgradeable - outside of memory chips and hard disks.

    Yep, that's why I'm loving what I'll be doing once my mini towers come in. Ended up ordering 2 Corsair PSU's so there will not be problem. Talked with Dell and they've been qu9ite helpful including the BIOS update so the Geforce GTX 980 will work. It got expensive but I'm sure going to enjoy them

    I agree about Towers - I've always preferred towers because they CAN be upgraded (yes, even the mac 'normal tower' ones).

    Keep in mind that there is more stuff for Windows - which also means that those individual vendors will have to support their respective products. If not for the Gov't, I think MS would be alot smaller than it is. For support, I've been told quite a few times by MS - that's not my problem - and good luck trying to find an actual resolution in the MS knowledgebase for things that ARE MS problems. You don't usually have this problem with Apple.

    With that in mind, I use a few OS' to include Windows, Dos, Mac and Unix (and variations). They each have pros / cons.

    Sorry for the derail Steve-O. Back on track, seems alot for a 13" .. but it does have the retina display.

    Similar item from Best Buy = $1709.00 - so this is a good buy if you need one.
