I'm wondering how many people are in the same boat here and deciding not to get the newer design modem due to the display. My 2 biggest problems is that I'm both a Windows user and a gamer and neither of these will work well with the retina screen. Windows OS and it's programs were never designed with retina displays in mind. Attempting to run Windows at native resolution would result in everything being extremely tiny and almost impossible to read. Attempting to run it in anything less than native resolution would make everything look blurry and ugly, and ruin the very point of having a retina screen. Another problem would be running games. My desktop still struggles to run certain games at 2560x1440 and this is with an extremely powerful graphics card driving it. Attempting to run a game at native resolution on the new MBP will probably just murder it and make the game unplayable. Again, running it at less than native resolution would only make everything look blurry and ugly. At the same time, I don't wish to buy the other MBPs with the old design as in a sense, I feel that I'm a sucker for new things and I feel I could definitely benefit from the lighter weight. Honestly I just wish that the newer design came with an IPS monitor with the option for a 1680x1050 or 1920x1200 screen. I'd totally buy that in a heartbeat. Anyone else feels this way too?
