Assuming the 2 TB ports are using their own lanes or whatever and we can run each at its max...?
I'm pretty much sold on it. But I still think it's funny we can have a 3k res screen but no R3D support in FCPx? Either way, can't wait to try CS6 on this beast!
RAM looks soldered in ala Macbook Air. Explains why the $200 premium isn't as bad as it has been in the past: Apple took away the user upgradeable aspect for both the storage and RAM.
Pulled the trigger and just ordered the 2.6 GHz Retina Version, 16 GB and 512 SSD. Never thought that I'll go back to laptop solution, was hoping for iMac 4K.
I personally am content that the MBPR uses the same 2.3, 2.6 and 2.7GHz CPUs as the regular MacBook Pros do. The only major disadvantage that I would see for some users is the lack of an optical drive, though I don't even remember when the last time I had to use one on a notebook was. The pair of Thunderbolt ports is very, very nice. Finally, we have some fast data transfer interfaces on a notebook. :D
Ordered a 2.3GHz MBPR as I think it'll be an excellent machine for transferring data from cameras to drives. Between the two USB 3.0 ports and pair of Thunderbolt connectors, it's unlikely that anyone will find themselves at a lack of bandwidth. :)
Interesting that the 2.7MBP has 8mb l3cache vs standard 6, but the 2.7MBPR doesn't mention this. Wondering how beneficial the extra 2mb is.
Having 2 TB ports and 2USB3 ports will revolutionize data transfer... I'm pretty psyched. :)
Yes I like this new MacBook Pro. I like it very much.
