    Don't know why you were downvoted; it's a valid question.

    Now that people are getting accustomed to the RMBP, does using a non-Retina MBP/MBA suck?

    When I get mine by Monday I can compare with my MBA and add to this thread.

    It took me about 5 minutes of use, before I looked back at my 13" Air and decided there was no going back, LOL.

    When I use my girlfriends non-retina MBP after using my rMBP I notice the difference for a few minutes and then quickly forget about it. What I do notice is how much faster mine is with the SSD.

    I wonder how it compares to my 24inch LED cinema display. I hope I don't have troubled looking at the cinema display after being spoiled by the new retina macbook pro!

    I wonder about the viewing distance though. For now it will have to do until they come out with a retina cinema display next year.

    Hm. For one, thats going to expensive, its one thing making a 15" panel retina, its a hell of alot expensier making a 27" panel retina ready.

    And you are forgetting you need a good gpu to drive that thing. Already the RMBP has trouble with lag when using 1920x1200 scaled, which is 3840x2400. So ye.

    Lets say two retina thunderbolt displays + its own display. Thats is many many pixels for a mobile card

    source please, the only lag issue I've read about is the one that was resolved by the trackpad update.

    the verge has a review up of the 13 mba. the reviewer talks about going from the rmbp screen to the mba screen.

    I have a 15" Early 2011 Hi Res Anti Glare and a base Retina MBP. I put them side by side and go back and forth. Been doing it for days. Changing settings on the MBPr up and down. Surfing the net, working iphoto, playing games, Facebook whatever. The hi Res screen is one of the nicest I have every owned. Bright and excellent color. However, it is not the Retina. The Retina is just as clean and crisp as anything I have seen to date. I do want to say that to me it is not like the Hi Res is inferior or I say what a huge difference, but like some posters say, no going back now.
