My System Specs


Enough of my joking hatred aside I got my demo MBP on the way for tomorrow but after looking over specs and talking with my Buddy Brandon(Apple OSX Division) We came to some conclusions with the new MBP's Retina Edition.

Price is a joke its insane for the features you get.
650 is not enough raw balls for the high resolution
The Ram is soldered to the board and the Flash HDD is going to fail and fail fast
The ram is the same ram we had a big issue with before as it would fail and we would swap a stick... now its stuck to the board so you need a whole new logic board if your ram fails.

The screen looks ******* amazing on photos and on 1080p games very clear.
The thin design is nice but it puts off lots of heat when we push the system at all.
USB 3.0 very nice as its about time haha
the CPU is awesome there is nothing bad to say about the CPU
The Boot time is fast and the drive makes no heat (its flash)

Final Thought
You will get that from me in 3 months, why 3 months? cuz I find that most new macs start having issues either out of the box or at 3 month intervals, 3 6 9 12 months are the times we get lots in.
Good Bye HWC it was great :)
