    13" rMacBookPro arrived! I am ready to dissect and reapply thermal paste!
    The Retina screen looks awesome.

    Thanks.
    I must say! Ang ganda pala talaga nang Retina display. Nung una ayaw kong bumili, that's why ang binili ko nuong una instead eh 15" cMBP. Kaso, umayaw nako ang bigat eh. So, I'm back to 13" and I'm happy with it.
    In a few days I will be opening it and doing the thermal paste upgrade.

    Is there much difference between the normal and retina MBP 13?

    Sir how is the performance of rmbp 13"? Does intel hd 4000 perform well when using resource heavy apps? I'm planning to buy next week kasi but i still have my doubts because of the lack of discrete graphics :)

    Hi Guys! I'm planning to buy the 13" Retina macbook pro this Christmas and I want to order it thru apple online store Philippines so I can add up an extra juice. Does the price there includes the custom taxes? TIA

    After reading some online reviews, I am still thinking if I should buy a 13" MacBook Pro Retina Display.

    Should I get a 13" MacBook Pro Retina or 13" MacBook Air?

    Do local stores like Digital Hub, Power Mac, or Beyond The Box configure MacBook like Apple Store? For example, processor upgrades or increasing RAM?

    Yup, just contact them to place your order for a BTO machine, usually takes some time to arrive.

    interesting to note that the new ten inch tablet NEXUS10 has the same screen resolution as the rMBP13
    Not bad for a $399 tablet
