Well... honestly I now have everything "retina" but my external monitor and my TV. And I can't stand my monitor neither TV. I find this very frustrating since I'd like to use my 24" 1080p monitor for real screen estate but I find it literally impossible. If I use both my rMBP display and the external monitor side by side I find the PPI difference distracting. If I use my rMBP in clamshell mode I'm constantly disappointed to the display quality of the monitor. It's horrendous, pixelated, piece of crap. I can't stand it. What comes to my TV... well, it's not that bad since I watch it far away enough so I won't really see that much pixels. Also, I'm mostly viewing movies and programs from my TV so it's not that bad. But... I'm still unhappy. And my eyes are screaming for 4K. First the phone, then the tablet and finally the laptop. All retina. Now I want external monitor and TV. Guess I'll be waiting till 4K IPS monitors goes below 1,000. And honestly 4K is really the minimum I'll accept for external monitor. It still feels slightly too low according to my current experiences with 27" and 32" 4K monitors. And what comes to TV... I've already found myself a great 4K television. Now I just need to save some money. Does anyone else find this "retina effect" extremely annoying and distracting? And money wasting.
