    I feel like I've heard this before regarding the iphone and ipad. The new retina MBP looks like its stocked with batteries.

    Does retina display take up battery power... and if so, why. Do you have articles you've seen elsewhere about this?

    Yes, I would imagine so because it does on the iPad in my opinion.

    On New MBP no it won't because the GIANT battery offsets it
