15" MacBook Pro with Retina

I decided against waiting for Christmas and a week ago ordered a new 15" MacBook Pro with Retina display with 16GB of RAM and a 256GB Solid State Drive. What can I say other than I was impressed with the 2012 refresh.

When it does arrive (in about a month or so) I intend to write about my current 13" MacBook Pro's (last years model) performance scores (xbench, SSD benchmarks, etc) and the new 15" MBP with Retina's scores.

In the past I've written a few times about Solid State Drive performance in Apple computers:

I do quite a bit of software testing on a number of different platforms - Mac, Windows - and I think this new computer will do nicely.
