From what I've read the successor to Ivy Brudge will be out by this time next year, do you think Apple will update their MacBooks for the chip as well as discontinuing the now old design for the MacBook Pro and go all Retina display? I'm thinking I'll try sell my Retina Pro within a year before my Apple Care is up so I can save up and get the better 2.6 core and 512 SSD which is the one that bugs me about mine, the 256 SSD if I'd had the option I'd have upgraded it go 512. But as I say, by this time next year there'll be a whole new chipset out just a question of whether they'll update to it?

Why did you spend all that money on a Retina MacBook when it doesn't have what you want in it and you're planning to sell it within a year?

it's everything i want in a laptop asside from the 256 SSD instead of the 512, i'm happy with the 2.3 core but the only way to get the 512 SSD is to have a 2.6 alongside it and that was just too expensive for me especially as i have 16GB of RAM in mine. I wasn't planning on doing that when i bought it, but it's an option on the table as saving up the difference over a year period and after selling mine wouldn't be so bad compared to coming up with six hundred or so on the spot :p but as i asked, any thoughts on whether they will update to Haswell and discontinue the old Pro's? If they did move up to a new chip set it with the option to get the base model with 512 SSD and 16 GB of RAM i'd upgrade in a years time for sure!

They might. But they might not. MacBooks aren't updated every year. But if a new intel chip comes out, maybe. But right now they are pretty dang powerful so I don't really think Apple will find it completely necessary. And really, just go external with the SDD if you really want more storage. Also, 0.3GHz won't exactly make the system run all that faster, just a way that Apple tricks you into spending more money :P
