Psyched to have finally got the thing (2.6/16/512) but man, after a month of waiting, now I have to play a whole new waiting game. If you're excited about the photography possibilities for the rMBP, it definitely, definitely has a lot of potential. At super-high resolution, photos look amazing. However... the most frustrating thing about the "retina" part is that it's compatible with pretty much no 3rd party photography apps (that I'm aware of) so you're stuck with Aperture and iPhoto for the time being if you want to use the super high-res part. Yeah, I know Retina Photoshop is in the pipeline, but I'd feel a lot more comfortable if I knew a release date. Weird that there is not. I know I'm not saying anything anyone doesn't know, and normally, not being able to take advantage of the high-resolution wouldn't really bug me that much. However, the real catch is that (to me at least) "pixel-doubled" images look GOD AWFUL (namely, fuzzy) -- at 1440x900, way worse than an actual 1440x900 (which is what I'm coming from) would make them look. So I'm uncomfortable working with CS6 for now. Or not uncomfortable. Just annoyed. Maybe it's my eyes playing tricks on me, but I don't think so. Don't get me wrong: the RMBP is a beast of a machine. But if you want it because you need to stay on the cutting edge of photography/graphics/etc, there's no rush that I can see. <sigh> Anyone else who already has an RMBP, I'd love to hear your thoughts as well, and perhaps ways to improve the experience so far. EDIT: just to clarify, for those who don't know, the Retina setting leaves the screen at an effective resolution of 1440x900.
