Retina Macbook Pro


I am looking at starting up iOS app design and graphics design and wanted to know if a rMBP 16GB would be okay for this? Heard some people have had issues as it scales down everything?

iPhone 5 16GB
iPad 3 32GB WIFI

Yeah, it'll do everything you need it to do short of rendering movie quality scenes in a timely manner.

...though what do you mean by scales down everything? Something like a 1024x texture will show up a little smaller onscreen when told to display at actual size than it would a 1920x1200 one, but that's not that big of a deal.
