Let Intel get rid of inventory of slow cpu, next year they will bump up specs to 2.2ghz and will make first gen. Buyers regret turning them to upgrade or become rebels.

Cough, upgrades, cough!

I haven't figured out why I would want to buy a new MacBook Retina other than it's stylish. I just recently bought a new 13" MacBook Pro Retina for ~$2100. It has 16 GB of onboard mem, 512 GB of flash storage, 2.9 GHz processor, 2 USB ports, 2 thunderbolt ports, an SD card reader port and an HDMI port. The MacBook falls far short of the specs. Perhaps it's meant to attract newbies to the Kingdom of Macs, but it doesn't look powerful enough for a serious laptop user.

It has turbo boost of above 3ghz, but ere exists external Ssd to fix that, but there's a reason they call MacBook Pro by its name for a reason.

Oh, that's right, I had forgotten about the turbo-boost, but the Pro also offers that to get up to 3.4 GHz, but it's an important point you make, i.e., that the MacBook can speed up if it needs to. It's also ~ 1lb lighter if that appeals to someone. However, it doesn't have the Pro's haptic keyboard (which I like) and the battery life is shorter by ~ 1hr and the built in webcam is not HD. In any case, I do think the resurrection of the MacBook line of "starter" Mac laptops is a good idea and the gold color is really appealing.
