As fantastic as the Retina Display is, it is well-documented how much worse apps not optimized for the Retina Display look than Retina apps to the point that they may actually appear more sharp on a standard display, text notwithstanding in that comparison. So in theory the web, with all its non-Retina optimized images and interfaces should look quite bad. Although, on the Retina iPad text and contrast does mostly make up for the slightly-pixelated images in my opinion. Still, the web could look quite ugly with all the extra pixels on the Retina Display - or perhaps even better than the iPad since it's run in Windows. I could not find another thread on it surprisingly, so how does the Internet look on the MacBook Pro's Retina Display? Un-optimized images could look as bad as images in apps that are not optimized, which is frankly an eyesore that is almost saved by high contrast and color reproduction. Debating some regrets, I bought a cheaper PC with a 95% color gamut 1080p display to replace my '08 Unibody MacBook Pro although if I cannot get OS X working on it, I will definitely be upgrading to the Retina. Heck, I am strongly considering it now regardless... I was going to wait another generation since it'll be before it's time for quite a while until apps and sites are ready for it, but like most Apple products they begin tempting me more and more until I do buy.
