Default When will the late 2013 retina Mac Book Pros be qualified?

I'd like to hear opinions about when the late 2013 Mac Book Pros will be qualified for PT11HD use. I'm trying to update my very old Pro Tools system but I can't bring myself to buy a two year old Mac Book Pro just so I can have a qualified laptop. I know that some people are running the new MBPs with no problem, but then you'll read a post where someone is having a problem and that person gets blamed for not running a qualified machine. I've never read anything that ever recommends that you buy last year's tech when you can get something more up to date so I really dislike being in this situation...having to update but having to go with an older machine.

I have a current MBP and had the previous model too. Both work equally well as far as stability is concerned, so just go for it and buy a new one if you're in the market right now. Just remember to up the specs 'cause you can't change anything afterwards. There's very little difference between 2012 and 2013 models and it's just a matter of time when they add the new model to their testing grid.

I'm running PT11 HD Native Thunderbolt, HD IO 8x8x8, with the latest MBP. Have no problems... I had a old Mac Pro that probably would have been fine, but I needed a laptop for school anyway, so I got both here now. Purchased the maxed out MBP and has worked flawlessly...
