The price cut in a smaller model may have enticed me prior to these things hitting the shelves, but Apple has lost me for the moment with the Retina MBPs.

Looks like it's going to be quite the waiting game.

I would love a 13" mbp with retina. I have a 13" mid 2009 mbp now, it replaced a 15" "hi-res" (1440x960) Powerbook G4. I am really missing those extra pixels. There needs to be some PC competition, because I can't afford to pay $1700+ for a laptop right now.
