    I'm currently waiting for my 2.6GHz 16GB RAM 512 GB rMBP to come in and I'm hoping to use it as a screen for my xbox (so I can take fewer things to college). Assuming this is possible since a friend does it on his alienware of some sort, what is the best way to do this?

    The Retina MacBook Pro does not have any video in... I don't know how you'd be able to do this. Not likely possible.

    that wont work. There will still be a delay on the laptop screen, its only designed to pass the signal to the TV without delay.

    Do what pacman suggested, for the money you will spend on getting it on your mac you will be much happier with a 19" or 21" LCD tv.
