    My partner ordered a retina MacBook and wants to install snow leopord for his logic plugins.

    Will that be possible?

    Sometimes it's possible, but I highly doubt that would be possible with the retina mbp.

    The version of OSX that ships on the Retina MBP has specific software support for the retina display.

    Even if you could manage to install Snow Leopard on it I think it would be a pretty bad experience. Everything on screen would be 1/4 the size it should be.

    I thought that this might be the case. I guess we will try it to see how it turns out but i think a return to the apple store will come right around the corner, lol.

    Does the regular macbook pro also ship with mountain lion?

    Mountain Lion isn't out yet. All Macs are currently shipping with Lion.
