Karl Gnter Wnsch: How ironic that the Macbook Pro Retina Display as it is currently used is useless for editing photos as you either can have a sharp picture but impossibly small control elements and unreadable menus or usable control elements but an upscaled picture which isn't rendered sharply...
I think fmian has a point there, although I have to ask, on desktop models we know there are high quality brands like Eizo Nec or Lacie producing the best monitors money can buy for the pros, and the typical mac is quite far behind, however on the laptop market I don't know if there even is any monitor matching (or even getting close ) to those products. Someday I'll have to buy one so I can edit pics "on the fly" and the best i've seen are macbook pros and sony vaios, are there better ones?
