Yeah theres definetly a difference between the RMP and standard 1400x900
There is clearly a difference.
I'm sorry but sir or ma'am you are losin your vision. It is really quite insane what it looks like..
Put it side by side with a lesser display and you'll see the difference.
There is a difference. It shows most when looking at text.
there is a clear difference, try go to a website with some text.
And ignore all the fuzzy images on the retina display.
major difference. You have to have decent eyesight or wear reading glasses to appreciate it fully I would think.
Everything is much clearer. It's rather pleasant. But as with all these types of things, it's relative for most people.
Then again, if your on it many hours a day you owe it to yourself to check it out at home, for a good demo.
If you haven't yet check out the amazing full res desktop pictures at:
I bought the package of them and WOW - that's the best way to show off the screen - if you aren't blown away by those images you must be blind.
If you cannot see the difference in every single piece of text on the screen, you definitely need to have your eyes checked.
Yes! You are the only one....
Just like the iPad3 vs iPad2, the difference is NIGHT and DAY
We are talking about retina display, not the lack of support from images that websites upload.
With text, its easy to spot the difference.
It seems as everyone notices the differences when looking at text. But, what about when looking at photos from perhaps dpreview forum or from your camera's memory card?
I compared the rMBP and the cMBP at the apple store and could clearly tell the difference. It's like an iPhone 3gs vs an iPhone 4
You really need to see them side by side. Particularly on web sites that have been updated for Retina, or applications that have been updated. Look at the text. The difference will be immediately obvious to you. Text on the Retina is... amazing.
Maybe its already there. I know once you hit that stage you will need reading glasses while using a computer if you want to get any type of benefit from the retina display or use any high resolution displays.
As good as the screen of the Retina-Macbook is, its still full of glare. I directly compared both, the Zenbook and the Retina-Macbook at a local store and came to the conclusion that the Zenbook has the better screen. It has 170DPI and is Anti-Glare, I could not encounter any pixels, even when I was directly infront of the display panel... there is nothing more that could be achieved.
Look on the bright side
Well, if you need to upgrade, at least you know that you might as well go with the cMBP, where you can save some money (though only for the lower spec model).
Personally the difference to me is quite stunning, and I have only played with it in store for a few hours. Where it really took my breath away was on photos, particularly something with some really nice bokeh in, totally, totally amazing.
I agree with the OP somewhat. The difference is clearly there but it's not earthshattering. I was more impressed with the form factor of the Retina than the display. Perhaps that's because I grew up on wobbly wavy green CRTs driven by Hercules cards. So all modern screens look beautiful to me...
Some people are just more visual than others, I think. I'm blown away by it...
how is the lack of support from web images NOT about retina display?
you can't just ignore it unless you don't care about images at all.
I see quite a difference in the crispness of the text when using safari on the rmbp vs. if I opt for an external monitor.
Day and night difference, even if you're scaling to non native resolutions.
troll much? lol. the difference is like distance between earth and sun
