I took a chance and ordered this bag. I just received it a few days ago. Let me start by answering my own question.
Yes, this bag does hold the latest, late 2013 15" Macbook pro with retina display.
Now for a little review. I gave up on briefcase bags, shoulder bags, and messenger bags several years ago. Frankly speaking I almost never just have a computer. I always have cables, chargers, papers, notebooks, and very often a book. Shoulder bags tend to be a bit on the small side and the straps never hold up. I have broken the strap on every shoulder bag I have ever owned. I have had some great bags, but the straps did not hold. We will see how this one does.
The bag feels great. Really nice quality to it. the compartments are nicely organized and arranged. I like the iPad compartment for putting in a full sized iPad. The front pocket is a bit small but I used a Cocoon Grid-It medium size and it holds everything I need.
There is plenty of room for the MBP and I think I will even get a sleeve for it, there is plenty of room to spare and I want the added padding. There is a lot of padding in the bag. I probably don't even need the sleeve but I am over protective of my equipment. I take of them and they last me a really long time. I would hate to have the life of this beautiful computer put short because a strap breaks, or the bags slips onto the floor.
I would recommend this bag to anyone that wants a small briefcase. It is not a really large bag, but I believe it holds enough for me. If you just carry a laptop and some cables you might want the slim model and save a little money. So far I am enjoying this one. Time will tell how it holds up.

Does this bag have a rubberized shoulder strap?
Hoping the shoulder pad stays in place securely.
