MBP 15inch with Haswell Processor
Jun 5, 2013

Keeping my fingers crossed for an update of the MBP Retina 15inch with the new Haswell processor - can't complain if get a few extra hours of battery life and a lighter /slimmer laptop.

I have the Sony Vaio Z (3rd gen) but it has failed on me once as I had apparently knocked the RAM out of place, that intermittently stopped the laptop booting, but also sent the fan running at full blast!  Not sure why the RAM knocked out of place will do that. Googling this problem says it is a graphics card issue or BIOS.  I use my laptop on location for Press Releases so an essential tool to get the job done.

Anyway I have never used a Mac computer so will give it a go and hopefully the learning curve is not too steep.  Keep the repaired Sony Z as a backup.

Wonder if anyone else waiting for this MBPr 15inch Haswell, I wouldn't expect existing MBP Retina users to upgrade.
