I couldn't really see a big difference. I have a macbook from 2010. It suits me just fine. I have 8 gigs of memory in it.

From what I saw of the Retina, there didn't seem to be a huge difference. Can anyone explain what the difference between the Retina screen and my screen might be?

You should see smoother text and more detail in images when applications that take advantage of the "retina" display are used.  In fact, I can view images at 2:1 on my 15 inch rMBP.
