I have NO idea what people are complaining about the Retina MBP for. It's the most wow factor I've seen in a computer except for maybe an SSD. I would not hesitate in the slightest in recommending it. That and SSD's I think are one of the best advancements in computing technology ever. Particularly when looking at photos it feels like I'm looking through a window to real life. Not at a computer. I look forward to seeing how it advances over the coming years. Thanks very much Apple.
