It's not as good?Any reason you don't want a high-end 15?
Well - my graphic design doesn't go much beyond whipping up a few images together for presentations... but I would recommend the rMBP on the basis that the display is an IPS display (so more accurate colors than any other MBP), and the extra real estate can definitely come in handy. However, Adobe is dragging their feet on upgrading the CS6 apps. So for everything to look good right now, you'll have to set the resolution to 2880x1800. Which is workable if you have good eyes, but it does take some getting used to.I'm looking at it now and it is very tempting indeed! I won't be home till October and I've heard rumblings throughout this forum of a possible r13 and r17. Would you recommend the new rMBP for digital art? I'm going to be using a Cintiq 22HD to hook up to whatever Mac I end up getting.
