I noticed that all but the top MBP Retina only have onboard graphic chips (Iris/Iris Pro) now instead of discrete graphics. Are they as good for graphic editing as the previous version with nVidia cards?
Don't know why Apple had to discontinue the non-retina MBP. Seems like a way to force newer technology even if people don't want it.
Its all about money:
But here's the strange thing, if you take the smaller of the two standard 15" Retina MacBook Pro configurations and add the CPU and SSD and RAM to match that of the larger one, you have two identically priced machines where one has a discrete graphics chip and the other doesn't!
