This model is selling for $1,199 at the Apple Store, and you're saving $90 off the current next best price. If you don't need the Retina screen, don't pay for it and get the same level performance for hundreds less. $999: Apple MacBook Pro MD101LL/A Ivy Bridge Core i5 laptop
The base model you're buying comes with a 2.5Ghz Ivy Bridge Core i5-3210M, a 500GB hard drive, and 4GB of RAM. If you add RAM and swap the hard drive out for a solid state drive, you'll have an even more solid machine for hundreds less than you'd get for an Apple Store configuration.
