With things like the shortage of ports and the proprietary memory/storage in the retina model it's really a Macbook Air Pro
I was quite disappointed with the 13" pro changes though.
Still a low res screen (the 13" air is higher res) and no discreet graphics. It seems like this model should be called a Macbook and there should be a separate Pro version with the above points addressed.

The 13" pro is their bread and butter for any current inroads they've made into the corporate world, and I'm assuming they didn't want to mess with it.

Really what I thought so too. The 1280x800 display resolution is just to low for using it as a primars work computer without an external monitor.

With a higher resolution display this one could be a nice alternative to the new MacBook Pro Retina and the new Macabook Air because you can ugrade the harddrive and RAM yourself.
