What do you guys think about calling the rMBP w/ discrete graphics the rMBPd in order to help distinguish when making posts or comments

The MBPd wasn't a thing, so why should rMBPd be a thing now? Unless the dGPU model suddenly has specific issues that the iGPU models don't have, I see no reason to add another acronym.

Lets get 1 thing straight.

It's MacBook Pro with Retina screen, that's the name of the product.
They have model numbers to identify their specs. too.

rMBP... is for dyslexics, or those who just followed a dyslexic.

MBPr
MBP/r
MBP w/ R.

All valid.

rMBP makes more sense since we are accustomed to seeing a lower case "i" in front of various Apple products among other things so the lower case r looks cool. Besides I see "rMBP" more than "MBPr" so no. I don't like saying MacBook Pro with Retina because its too long and anyways it sounds like the same product with a retina screen when its really not. Just my opinion though.

Anyways I'd like to create my own abbreviations for products and have everyone follow them but thats pretty unrealistic since it "just happens" and it sticks.
