Hi I am about to entirely replace OS X with Linux. I am pretty clued up as an experienced Linux user but far from being a true geek. Mac: I like the hardware but not the OS. So I am not really interested in dual-booting at all. Current MacbookPro (Mavericks) is a 2012 i5 2.5GHz with 4GB DDR and an aftermarket WD 1TB HDD and Mint 17.1 LiveSession runs rather well. Also considering a new MacbookPro 15" 2.2Ghz i7 Quad with 16GB DDR, IrisPro and a 256GB SSD. Questions: Is there any reason NOT to replace the entire OS X? Will the Macbook allow replacing OS X? How well does Linux (Mint) handle the Retina display? Will it at least do 1920x1080 resolution, or can Linux go higher?
