Good. Now slot these into the rMBP 13" er's and roll em out by July. I'm tired of sitting on my hands, and I imagine the staff at the local Best Buy and Apple Stores are sick of me playing with their display models and not buying anything.  
Yeah, they go into an AT&T store AFTER seeing a commercial on TV. What, do you think they miraculously forget why they went there between the couch and the mall parking lot?
Assuming said thunderbolt port can also pass thru video. Nothing on the product website states that it can. Even so, for those of us without thunderbolt-equipped monitors, this would require and additional adapter, bumping the price up an additional 30-40 dollars.I'm sorry, but that's ridiculous.The only useful aspect of this thing is the addition of extra USB ports and an Ethernet port. Guess what? I can solve that with a 25 dollar USB hub and 30 dollar Ethernet dongle,...
What's the point of this thing if it has lost that HDMI out? Can I plug my mini-display port to HDMI adapter into that thunderbolt out port? I'm guessing probably not, so again, what's the point of this thing without a video out?
  I was told the same thing, so I just got a Wifi+4G iPad on a separate line. It's an additional 50 bucks a month, but I use the crud out of that thing so it was a good idea in hindsight.
This is great and all, not really surprising, but the only time I look at CR is when buying a blender or vacuum cleaner. Their tech and car reviews are ridiculously skewed towards the elderly.
  The latest version of Xbox Dashboard is running Metro, but it works much better with the Kinect controlling it. It's so nice not having to search for the remote when I get home. I turn on the tv and xbox, and then yell at my TV from the kitchen what I want. By the time I've finished throwing together a salad and such I've got Netflix playing whatever series I'm watching at the time and everything is grand.
  And if Samsung hadn't literally spent double last year on R&D what Apple is bragging about spending this year, your clever quip might mean something.
Looks like a solid bit of tech, but I'm having a hard time justifying the 50 dollar price premium over the 16GB iPhone 5. They might want to rethink that if their aim is to seriously compete.
  This.   He's supposedly an audiophile, yet "detests" add-on speakers? Huh? Even a cheap pair of entry level Creative Labs 2.1 speakers blows the very best set of built in speakers right out of the water in terms of range and frequency response. I'm not wild about clutter either, which is why I have a nice soundbar from Yamaha mounted on the wall behind my 27" monitor, and the subwoofer under my desk. It fills the entire room with rich, clean sound but is barely...
