A very small and insignificant thing I noticed: the little dots on the background are pushed out. My dashboard background dots are pushed in.

The widgets are so nice and clear though. It's amazing.

Question: Is this machine good enough to replace my 24" 2.4 GHz Al iMac?

Or am I going to miss those 9" of desktop I'll lose?

As pretty as it is, I just don't think I can justify purchasing it...

On 10.8 it looks the same, light up top and dark on the bottom of the circles...

Just make sure you order enough ram, because they now solder it and 3rd party upgrades are kaput.

ha this is a joke! The whole idea of this article is to click the image to be able to see how the retina resolution looks.... um sorry im on a previous gen macbook pro and it just looks exactly the same! So why bother if you haven't got the resolution capable of seeing this in its true form!


Are you viewing it in safari? You'll see a magnifying glass replace your cursor if you are. Click and it'll expand the image to show how many pixels there are.

Can I justify spending $2K+ on the new pro, or should I be more frugal? (I'm 30K in debt so far and still in school...)


I think you answered your own question.
