Today's deal is for the Apple MacBook Pro 13.3" Retina Display laptop with Intel Core i5. The 3.57 lb. 13.3" Retina Mac on the other hand is a bit more pedestrian in terms of specs. For $1,699 you get a dual core full mobile Intel Core i5 CPU clocked at 2.5GHz (not the slower ULV CPU used in Ultrabooks and the MacBook Air). It has a healthy 8 gigs of DDR3 1600MHz RAM soldered on the motherboard and a less than capacious 128 gig SSD drive. The optical drive is gone to make the machine thinner and lighter. Basically, it's a 13" MacBook Pro standard model with a seriously upgraded display and the SSD option in terms of specs. And it's a pound lighter and 0.2" thinner.
With today's deal you can save $50 plus free shipping and get the laptop for $1649.
