Once you go Retina you can't go back.

    I've seen people post about issues going back to "regular" display after using their Retina. When I first received my retina, I had my pc and Mac on side by side, as I was still transferring and getting use to my first Mac.

    It's been over a week since I turned on my PC and my eyes could notice the difference by A LOT!

    I even went to the Apple Store yesterday, helping my friends decide between the Air vs Pro and I couldn't stand the resolution of anything else.


    But after a while your eyes will soon adapt to the crispiness after some

    It was an immediate difference to me

    I was very happy at how far away I was typing on a Retina MBP at the Apple store when I tried it out two months ago. It delighted my myopic vision to no end.

    Once these get better battery life, I'll definitely give it another look IF I still need a full blown computer.

    Since I got my retina iPad- i find it much harder to work with my non-retina iMac and MB Pro displays.

    Got the rMBP, and I seriously can't go back to non-retina. Impossible.

    First world problem much?

    I would gladly go back to hi-res or full-hd if were available in the same package and a hundred or so dollars chaper. I only bought the retina due to the improved design and thinner form factor. The retina doesn't help my productivity one bit.

    Sad isnt it lol.

    So many posts here are "first world problems".

    Like the "3rd rMBP and still minor IR, Im returning my product even though it only occurs during IR test and not any regular day to day use.".

    I've still got an iPhone 3GS and it's horrendous to look at after being on my rMBP, but I notice it more after using the new iPad (not mine, my dad's). I wish I could afford a new phone! #totallyafirstworldproblem

    The difference between iPhone 3G and iPhone 4 is much more apparent than normal laptop screen vs retina MacBook.

    I use my RMBP with a 1080p 23" external monitor. No problems working with both at the same time.

    Yet going from my iPhone 4 to the classic mbp doesn't bother me one bit

    Yeah, the 3g has a bluish hue, wheras the 4 is warm. Personally, the non retina doesn't bother me, it's the temperture i don't like.

    Iv'e used two ipad three's and using lower PPI on my devices doesn't bother me. I guess although i see sharp the sharpness in the new ipad it really isn't much of a difference pixel wise on my eyes.
