    Has anyone tried to run ML GM on cMBP?

    Reading the different topics, it seems ML will be optimized for retina and will fix all rMBP issues. So, will it run faster on cMBP than rMBP?... or slower? XD

    I can imagine the following snippet from ML code:

    if (isRetina == true ) then
    cpuAssistApllicationsUIs;
    else
    // Nothing to do...
    endif

    That is not what he asked.

    Mountain Lion should run just fine and is optimized to run well on all supported systems.

    Is that the same as an MBP?

    I am mostly interested in a comparison between mid 2012 cMBP vs rMBP applications speed once loaded into memory (i.e. Application loading time from disk is not counted).

    yes, but people put the c for classic in front to distinguish it from the retina model.

    isn't that the rMBP? :D

    (Don't mind me, I'm just being a bit silly).
