The new MBPs do have a lower starting price, but I think they achieved it by using a lower clocked CPU. I have the original (2012) high end rMBP and it had a 2.6GHz CPU, but the new one has a 2.3GHz CPU with the 2.6CHz a $200 upgrade. Maybe because of architectural improvements in Haswell they thought 2.3 was equivalent.
