Re: Retina display a gimic?

I have owned virtually every Mac Book, Mac Book Pro and Mac Book Air. Good thing I have family and employees who are delighted to take my hand-me-downs.

The retina screen is by far the best I have ever seen. Big difference is the viewing angle. You don't have to carefully adjust it to get the best view. Lots of fun also watching TV on demand.

That said, if all you want to do is processing and if your demands are not stringent, then get a refurbished Mac of recent vintage. You can upgrade the ram and hdd with parts form Macsales. However, if the difference in price is manageable and you want to spoil yourself, get the retina. I am very glad I got one.

For performance info, checkout Barefeats. Retina handily beats other MacBook Pros.
