Here is a picture of the difference with the new iMac display.

Took me a few seconds to understand what I was looking at and that's a significant reduction of reflection.

It really is an actual computer with a very good screen.

What did you think it was before that, a make believe computer?

To some extent, a compromise between performance, convenience and style.

Now, as a computer, it's a stylish, convenient performer.

If I can scape up the cash, it's going to find itself in my home very soon. BTW, I also have to buy 2 MBPs for my twin daughters heading off UCLA and Berkeley so I've got to use my money wisely.

I would buy them 13" MacBook Airs instead. Better resolution, lighter, less bulky, and drastically better battery life.

First, Mom is sold on Retina. Second, I'm not sure what type of demands they're going to be putting on the computers.

One will be studing Neuroscience. The other Physics.

They do want portability but don't want to sacrafice usabillity and if at all possible I don't want them to lose any study time because their computers are lagging or there isn't enough data storage?
