So, I got a 27" iMac 2 1/2 years ago after having a 15" MacBook Pro prior to that. I live in a smaller apartment and didn't think I'd miss the portability of a notebook. After 2+ great years with this gorgeous 27" display, I find myself wanting portability more and more. I had an iPad 2 for that but found the combo of iPhone, iPad, and iMac to be Apple overkill and just too many devices to worry about. I'm thinking of selling the iMac and going with the 13" MacBook Pro with Retina Display upon release. This will mean I'd be losing some power (quad-core iMac) and a ton of screen size in exchange for portability. What does the MacRumors community think of this move? Just curious ---------- Also, getting the 27" Thunderbolt Display along with the Pro would be ideal, but EXPENSIVE. Plus, I'm afraid that the pixel density of the Retina MBP will spoil the appeal of the big external display since the PPI will be so much less. Once you go Retina, you can't go back. That's one of the reasons I sold my iPad 2 because that screen was an eye-sore compared to my retina iPhone at the time.
