After 9 months, still nothing like this available besides on a MacBook Pro.

Excellent pixel density, mediocre (at best) color reproduction. Good for viewing photos as a consumer? Alright. Good for editing as a pro? No. Don't get me wrong, I'd like to see higher resolutions available in PC's laptops, but aside from the fact that the OP said nothing about laptops, there are many laptops with better screens than the Retina, and for less money.

Which PC laptop has a display anywhere close to the Retina? Oh right, none. And the colour is very good, with a very wide viewing angle too.

Any PC laptop with an IPS display (there are dozens) has equally wide viewing angles. Many of them have better than the 60% color gamut of the Retina display. The colors might look very good to you because the screen is brightly-lit, but that's not worth much. The fact is that the Retina display is only remarkable in the current laptop market for its resolution. That's often the first thing people look at in a screen's specs because it's the easiest to understand, but it's far from the most important.
