I am opening this thread up as a place that users of the rmbp can share the experiences with the now well established issues with driving the retina display (see thread from front page as a primer: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1396188 ). These kinds of threads are always a minefield and people resort to a lot of bashing and counter bashing since, a. people that buy something want to rationalize away any problems to justify their purchase, and b. a lot of people here feel it's their duty to defend apple against any perceived "attack". Let's try to keep this thread clear of that please. So it can be useful to any prospective buyers (I am one) who have been alarmed with the reporting on these issues and are having second thoughts on purchasing an rmbp. The rMBP is a pushing the limits of technology, apple are to be commended for that. Maybe some will argue that their obsession with thinness has brought a big cost to performance and the slimming down was premature, when a thicker model could have afforded a better graphics card, or that maybe their rushing it to market to have first release bragging rights was too early. Whatever the case might be the notebook is out and it's in user hands now and can be evaluated. Any polite feedback is appreciated: positive, negative and neutral. Any specific problems with certain applications and lack thereof with others. Any technical discussions are more than welcome. Any experiences running ml dp and soon the ml official release to see if it's possible for software developments to make up for the hardware shotcomings. Let's keep this clean and informative guys so everyone can read the feedback and assess the issues or lack thereof for themselves.
