I'll try to keep this short here. I am hoping that some hands one experienced users could provide a few answer about rMBP. A friend of mine who uses only PC and Win laptops wants to move over at least one machine to an rMBP. Here are the concerns - 1) Using video oriented apps and concerned about issues (he heard about) with respect to heat problems. 2) What would be the ideal set up (other than external monitor) for a desk station centering around rMBP? 3) What screen calibration tools would be best suited for photo and video work? 4) What BTO or after purchase add ons should be considered? 5) Must be able to playback 1080 video durations up to 3 hrs straight (or more). Hopefully, a few people will respond as my friend is wise enough to want to know what hands on folks say about this laptop for video/photo/possibly audio work. I am only going to guess that he is using Adobe products.
