I need a new laptop and think about the new 13inch macbook pro with the retina screen.

The windows screens need calibration for serious photowork. Does a retina screen need this too? I remember reading something about it, but can't find the link any more.

All screens need calibration for serious photo work. Doesn't matter if you are using Mac, Windows, or whatever. The factory monitor profile is generic, so I calibrate every Mac I have.

The main difference with the Retina display is resolution only. It isn't much different with regard to color, contrast, etc. It just has more pixels, that's all. It is possible for a Mac to have stunning Retina resolution and crappy colors. Calibrate it.
