I can't find his option on my new retina MBP either before or after applying software updates: it's still there in Displays prefs on my iMac after all software updates. I can't find any info on whether Apple took out this option, hid it or moved it. Has anyone heard anything about this? If you have a retina MBP, do you have this option?

I just picked up a Retina MBP today (LOVE IT!), and also cannot find this option anymore under system prefs...the display unit at the apple store had it?!? :confused:

Display preferences was there when first installed, but after I installed a few apps it went away.

There must be something that disabled it, the most likely suspect is SwitchResX but I can't be sure. Anyone?

It's gone. Mine was there originally, but I migrated from another Mac, but it was just the icon and the ability to go into display preferences. I could not set resolutions directly using the menu that pop up when you click on the icon.

Now it's gone completely and I am not sure when it disappeared.

This issue seems to affect retina MBP only? I have another regular MBP that was upgraded from Lion, the display preferences icon is retained.

I think the 2012 MBA does the same thing. All of my other Macs don't do it. If it annoys you, then you won't be happy with ML.
