    I've always wondered; what exact damage can someone do if they know your serial number?

    Haha, such an "ironic" question in a post with a serial number a few posts up. ;)

    ...but really, I'd like to know to. XD

    Anyone can call in with your serial number and have AppleCare transferred from one device to the other. Most times they will ask for proof of purchase but I've done it a few times were they haven't (with my own devices of course), so this guy needs to remove his serial number asap!!!

    Can you do me a favor and tell me what your remaining SSD space is from the original 256gig after osx was installed.

    Thanks!

    I've seen it happen, but at the end if anything were to happen the original user does "win" if they have all documentation. So it's not a HUGE problem but it's time consuming if it were to happen.

    Different screen I am surprised that there is not that much difference between the two. Actually screen space in Safari is about the same. Menu Bar icons much smaller on my 2011. Also, Safari book marks bar and such font smaller on the 2011. Even on close inspection I'd be hard pressed to see much difference in font quality but I wear glasses. Still playing with it

    you can actually change the screen resolution to be bigger/smaller so safari will change. im using the option between the (best) retina and smallest.


    heres what my desktop looks like if anyone cares.

    well candy bar would do the trick if you dont have a retina display, but if you do you have to go into

    system > Library> core services > dock > contents > resources

    then backup the files ur gonna change and replace them

    you can find docks on deviant art

    Have you had any issues with your battery? Mine gave about 4.5 hrs yesterday. charged it full last night, and today it's draining at an astonishing rate. 25% in 30 minutes. Only running word, powerpoint, preview and safari(no youtube videos or flash content) and 60% brightness...might have to exchange my unit if this keeps happening in the next couple of days.

    I'm dying to know how (non-retina) custom docks, icons, walls, etc. look with retina. Do they look blurry and worse than old MBP? If so are they usable? Does the web look like crap? Blurry graphics, images, etc?

    Do you mean CandyBar doesn't work with retina? If so, hope they update soon.

    Are either of you guys having any of the issues some of the other posters have complained about?

    A green or purplish hue to the display, namely when a white display is on screen (you might need something else, like your old computer to compare it to)?

    Debilitating lag when scrolling webpages in Safari?

    Significant lag in the animations using expose or when resizing windows (namely when using the "More Space" setting)?

    I have a scheduled delivery for Monday as well. My tracking information hasn't updated for almost 24 hours (after it left Alaska), however, so it doesn't look like I'm getting anything today.
