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?

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
