    I felt like my brand new 13" rMBP was a little dark compared to what I am used to, so I just compared it to my old 2010 Macbook Air and the screen of the Air is definitely slightly brighter than that of the rMBP.

    Now, I am wondering if that is normal, or if my screen could have a defect.

    Canada, eh!
    I agree with you. It's dimmer, but it's normal. I mostly edit photographs and I had to turn the brightness up slightly further on the rMBP.

    I previously used a 2011 15" MBP with the matte screen and it was brighter at the same setting.

    Here's a thread about brightness...
