    On my non-retina macbook pro, I can see my mouse move pixel by pixel if it moves slowly enough. Is the retina pro the same way and the resolution is just higher, or does the mouse move across the greater number of pixels to make it smooth and hard to pinpoint on a precise pixel?

    Sounds like you have a ghosting issue.
    There are more pixels per inch, so it looks smooth, you can't distinguish the exact pixel.

    Nah, he doesn't have ghosting. I used to do this sometimes. If you move your cursor slowly on those older screens, you can watch it move pixel by pixel.

    Is that saying that you can't on the newer ones? I'm looking to upgrade from my 2009 MBP to a retina next year and I'm curious what the experience is going to be like.

    I tried moving the cursor really really slowly, and can't tell. I think its just because of the high ppi.

    You'd probably need a magnifying glass for that... or squint really hard :cool:
