My last MacBook Pro, Late - 2013 was a 2nd generation retina. I used to order new laptops every year then I discovered hobbies and money sort of got thrown into other directions. the MBP purchase came at the start of my beer hobby and way before motorcycling and more travel. This is going to be a huge upgrade for me. Haswell Core i7 w/ ddR2 to DDR4, 6-cores, higher clock speed, etc. very excited.
