Get an Apple 15.4" i7 MacBook Pro with Retina Display (the most recent model) for $1,749.95 plus free shipping at B&H Photo. This was the lowest price we found by $244 and easily the lowest price we've seen since this laptop was introduced last month. This runs on a 2GHz i7 processor with 8GB of memory and a 256 GB solid state drive (no moving parts). And it has amazingly detailed 2880 x 1800 resolution display. Bonus: There is no sales tax (except in NY).
