Adding Retina to the Macbook Air

So, I'm going for the 13" Air.....the resolution on the screen size is very sharp. But I was tempted by the retina Pro.....but then I thought hey, I have a 3rd gen iPad!

So I downloaded Air Display on my iPad and Mac Pro. Bam, instant Retina 1024x768 or I can use it as 2048x1536 display...will make a nice portable 2nd monitor for my new Air.

How is the video lag on the iPad with this setup?

Noticeable but not terrible. I didn't try a video on it but for documents, photos, chat windows, etc. it's fine.
