Heresy, I know. Like most folks here, I was excited about the release of the new Retina Display MBP. But having now seen the new machine in the flesh, I can't help but wonder if the Retina Display really adds as much as it takes away, at least at this point. Yes, some text and graphics look awesome. But other text and graphics look worse. For every item that looks better, there seems to be another that looks worse. Speaking with your head - not your heart - is the Retina Display really much more than a wash at this point? And, yes, the resolution scaling is nice. But there seems to be a fairly noticeable lag at the higher end of the scale. And while some say the Mountain Lion OS may alleviate some of this, it remains to be seen whether that is so. I just keep asking myself whether the Retina Display, at least at this point in its development, really adds all that much in a day-to-day sense. Are we liking this mostly because we really, really want to like it? Like others, I haunted my local Apple store for days after the release but could never find a new RMBP in stock. I then ordered online, but Apple lost my order. So I'm starting to wonder if maybe karma isn't doing me a favor for once. Maybe I should wait a bit?
