Mr Fartleberry: That's right, no longer works with the popular Snow Leopard 10.6.8. I for one am not turning my photo desktop into a phone so I'm glad I abandoned Aperture and switched to Lightroom when 3 came out.

Now that the 30" is gone, the 17" laptop looks dead, along with the Mac Pro you have to wonder if Apple are still in the graphics business.

I'm not going back to running PS and pallets on a 15" laptop screen no matter how many magnifying glasses you're going to need to see your work.

It seems like there's quite a bit of misinformation about how the "Retina" display scaling actually works. While UI elements and text and other things are scaled up so you don't have to squint, things that require pixel-accurate rendering are still displayed at their true resolution. Everything isn't scaled at a fixed 2x, it's more like a hybrid variable-scaled interface. Only old programs not yet updated for the new display will be rendered entirely in 2x.

TD912: While Photo Stream and syncing files manually can be annoying, you
guys forgot to note that Apple also offers a "camera connector kit"
which allows you to import directly from a camera's USB port or an SD
card without having to go through resizing/recompressing: http://store.apple.com/us/product/MC531ZM/A

And if you have an iPhone and iPad with iPhoto, there's "Photo
Beaming" which also allows you to transfer full-res photos between the
two via WiFi or Bluetooth.

Still, exporting resolution is limited, but if you really need images over 12MP, I'm not totally sure iPhoto is the right solution anyway.

Oh, to clarify, there shouldn't be resizing via the Camera Kit or "beam" unless the image is over 19MP.

The reason for the resolution limitations is probably because there's a bottleneck in the CPU and RAM in the iPad. While phones and tablets are quite advanced, it seems they're just not quite ready for stuff like this. Anandtech, a pretty reliable tech site, basically said the iPhoto software might actually be a bit too much for even the newest iPad hardware to handle. http://www.anandtech.com/show/5688/apple-ipad-2012-review/9
