Re: Comparing the Retina and non-Retina MBPs

In fact, I would consider buying the non-Retina model of the MBP except that, when you configure it as I would want (higher speed i7 cpu, more Ram, solid state drive) the price is actually higher than the Retina model.

Since the RAM slots and HDD bay in the non-Retina MBP are user-serviceable, neither the extra RAM nor a SSD (that replaced the internal HDD) would need to come from Apple.  You might want to keep that in mind in price calculations.

Then again, the Retina MBP has other advantages (multiple external display support, less weight to lug around) in its favor.
