    i am getting my very first MacBook (mid 2012) non-retina... what I am wondering is if I were to get my hands on a retina display for a mid 2012 and put that in would it make my display retina?

    Nope. And even if you could, it wouldn't handle the resolution.

    Paul is correct. A non-Retina 2012 won't swap with Retina model. 2012 and early 2013 Retinas are interchangeable though.
