Stand fast Apple. I look forward to the day when NTT DoCoMo is no longer the largest carrier in Japan.
The Haswell chips with Iris Pro graphics (Iris Pro 5100 for the 13" and Iris Pro 5200 for 15") are only sampling; they are not shipping yet.  Apple will ship the new rMBPs when Intel can supply sufficient quantities of suitable Haswell chips.
No problem.  I can buy an Audi instead.
When one of these includes a heartrate monitor, then I'll buy one.
Apple should hold the line and not cave in to short-term pressures. Customers want iPhones and will switch to the carriers that offer them. For example, China Unicom and China Telecom will continue to pull away from China Mobile in terms of percentage of customers subscribing to high-speed data plans.
If I'm reading this correctly, the 2013 MacBook Air will have better integrated graphics than the 13" 2012 MacBook Pro.
Eventually, even big iron servers will be disposable non-serviceable units.  I guess the next generation of the iMac and the Mac Mini will be completely sealed and just as upgradeable as an iPad.  The Mac Pro will probably be the last Mac to not even have user installable memory, but it will eventually happen.   To those who say they will never buy one, fine, keep using 201x hardware until it dies -- even when eyeglasses have 100x more computing power than your Mac...
I would love to put a wager on that.
What do you mean by classic 15" ???  Do you mean non-Retina?  It is possible that Apple might offer non-Retina MBPs with Haswell, but I would be surprised.  I'm not even sure that Apple will offer non-Retina MBAs with Haswell.
I disagree with the premise that the entry-level price of the Retina MBPs must match the current entry-level price of the non-Retina MBPs.  Also, if we look at the prices the resellers are now charging, it seems the costs are coming down as the yields are rising.  I don't expect any large margin drops, either soon or farther into the future.
