    I got my MBP-R (16 GB ram, 2.7 GHz) via FedEx on Wednesday morning. I love most of it and it is a huge upgrade for me from a 5 year old heavy used 17" MBP, but it seems even apply is having problems with the retina resolution through even its OS.

    on three separate occasions I have looked up and the icon's and computer name in the upper right corner are stuck in normal resolution rendering then fuzzy while the application or finder drop downs ont he left are displayed in all their retina crispness.

    This is easily fixed by going to system preferences and changing the display resolution settings and then changing it back to the settings I had picked. It is very odd and something that is a bit glaring.

    Images are attached of before and after a hardware fix. (have to view at full resolution to see the difference)

    Another issue - Favicons. While safari is nice in its retina glory I prefer chrome and one of the main reasons is that you can use favicons as your bookmarks, saving a ton of space. Sadly this format was made before this kind of resolution was available and now they are all fuzzy. So sad.

    This complaint also goes towards ads with images of text and all icon based systems like the message input box.

    See third attachment for illustrative purposes

    I have the same issue with favicons :(

    I am seeing lots of resolution issues as well - especially when dragging windows back and forth between the MBP:R and the Thunderbolt display.
