I did not use Lion.... my latest OS is Snow Leopard...
Can you guys give me a list of what apps to get for rMBP? (Is SMCfan still good? What's that graphic switching program?)
Is there some color sync templates???


I'm so outdated hahaha
Thanks!!!

gfxcardstatus causes a lot of issues for people on the rMBP, I would avoid it.
Not really i have seen no issue same as many others...

SMC Fan Control still works, gfxCardStatus too.

SMC Fan Control 2.4 is now updated for the Retina and fully compatible.

i'd say the resolution switcher is most important if you like to tinker..dunno if there's any side effects yet
