Hi - No bitter reply here, more like "green with envy" :-D.

I'm still in the "humming and hahing" stage myself ... getting impatient waiting for a Mac Pro, if and when one with current tech will ever be released ... so considering a Macbook Pro or iMac in the interim.  I have a 2.5 i5 2011 Mini, originally planned as an "experiment", and getting anxious wanting to move to a more powerful machine more comparable to my typical home-built PC.

I've seen other discussions here and elsewhere with people suggesting there were "issues" with the Retina MBP and the non-retina model is a safer bet.  But I know there was a recent speed bump (which I would suppose also included other "fixes").

So it seems like a conundrum.  Anyway enjoy your new machine :).
