Re: How important is retina display to editing?

So I went to look at the RMBP today & from comparing to the regular 15" could definitely see a difference with respect to sharpness, what I believe is micro-contrast, just clarity throughout the pic. Now this was only spending a few minutes looking at few pics. Although I could definitely see a difference, I'm not sure if it's life changing. I ended up buying the MacBook Pro 13" for a number of personal reason; the biggest being my external 24" screen.

I thought for awhile about the RMBP but at the end of the day they didn't have any base models in stock & I needed a computer now.

Thanks for everyone's inputs.
