Not missing anything- except most are waiting for the revised Macbook Pro's coming out soon.
I know I usually hate it when people say that too- the next version is always around the corner.

But in this case it should be a major revision since the Pro Retina introduction.
Lighter & thinner, with Skylake processors and possibly AMD's New 400-Series 'Polaris' graphics chips.

All that said, those new ones will be $2K, so $1600 for a Pro now is not bad.

256GB PCIe-Based Flash Storage
I still don't get how people can live with 256GB in a windows/mac laptop especially if it's called a "Pro" version, I guess that the only way to survive could be literally moving everything media related to the cloud and paying for LTE in your laptop but I still can't see that as an attractive way of computing.

Personally I'll never be able to justify buying a laptop with less than 512GB unless I'm planning to immediately upgrading it anyway.

First Mac apps tend to be smaller and take up less room. second, with expandable storage & cloud storage there is no reason to keep everything on the computer. I have a 13" Macbook Pro with 256gb SSD drive and I thought the same as you when I first got it. But it is only half full with everything else on an external hard drive. Plus I regularly "clean out" my laptop of junk because I have less storage. You'd be surprised how many junk files computers store without our knowledge.

I have a MBP retina 13 with 512GB and I rarely have more than 100-150GB free after doing some clean up, only in personal pictures and videos I use like 100GB.

I got a new 15.4" model with 512gb for $1400 like a month ago. ( from 3rd party seller on Amazon. With new models dropping soon, I wouldn't jump on this.

What do you have that takes up more than 256GB? If it's videos or music, you can just pop in an SD card.

Good assessment. I would only add that raw performance shouldn't be that much different. The processor's big win in the coming update is supposedly allowing for increased battery life. It will be a bit more powerful, but a ton more efficient. Having said that, how much will a 16gb loaded model cost? That is the plus side of this deal.

Count me in as one who is waiting, but I may be disappointed at the pricing.

Yes, i bought the exact mac from them like 2 weeks ago on ebay. Brand new mac, no issues at all.

You or someone need to be at home to pick up the mac. Shipper & UPS would not hand out the package at UPS locations.

If I have to keep my porn on a WD Passport drive it defeats the entire purpose of having fast loading PCI-e flash based storage. When will Apple make their laptops more porno friendly?

Looking to possibly get this for my brother heading off to college. He's big into photography, picture/video editing, etc. Would the on board Iris Pro graphics be enough to handle this or would it be better to wait for a MacBook deal with a dedicated graphics card?
