Resolved rMBPs are not bright enough in my opinion?

    Everytime I go to a best buy or Apple store, I try to brighten up the laptop screens. They seem so dim to me.

    Does anybody think this way too?? They make the screens brighter in the next update...

    I think you need to remember you're in a store, the lights there compared to being at home will be a lot different. This will have a visual effect on yourself.

    well buy one and test it at home, I can't imagine your home is lit up like a store shop.

    Then don't buy one? The rMBPs are bright enough to cause eye fatigue at the highest brightness IMO.

    The whole point is at home it will be brighter (as stated in my first post)...unless you home is lit up like a store, then yes you'll be disappointed...

    There is literally no way to know what the next lot of screens will be like (pretty much the same I'd imagine though).

    If Apple don't make what you want buy something else.

    I've researched quite a bit of different devices and the screen was pretty much one of the brightest of any laptop or tablet with the iPad being brighter at or around 420 nits

    My rMBP rarely goes over 75% brightness. Typically it's set to 50% or less.

    I have to say with my MBPs (I've owned both a 15" and 13" MBP in the past), they've been plenty bright, so much so, I usually turn them down quite a bit, otherwise it feels like my eyes are going to burn out of my socket.

    The screen brightness in the stores is WAY brighter than you ever need at home. I rarely run my MBP above 50%; my Dell external 4k display burns my eyes on its default setting, so if you are used to that level of brightness in the store you surely don't need it at home unless you are sitting outside in broad daylight.

    I'm here to serve. Seriously though, my rMBP 13 screen is way brighter than my 17" and 14" inch Lenovo's as well as much sharper, so I'm happy with it. Must confess I never look at stuff in stores, every laptop I've owned has been an internet buy.
