The sad thing is that Microsoft is under a very real, imminent threat, and it seems they still haven't fully recognized it.

They are under attack on nearly all fronts. There is nothing...

Microsoft's new mission... clear as mud.

Not sure if any of you have been following the latest public email out of Microsoft's new leader, Satya Nadella. It was perhaps the biggest waste of bandwidth I've ever had the misfortune of...

Assuming the new machine has the same version of OS X, yes, it will pull over everything (including installed applications).

You can do that - or you can simply use the MIgration Assistant (this launches automatically following a new OS X install) to pull your data over from the source Mac to the new one.

Nope. The Retina models have the memory soldered fast. There is no way to upgrade outside of what Apple supplies. If they don't offer a 16GB option from the factory, then you're stuck with 8GB.
