The retinabooks (and 13" Air to a lesser extent) are the ideal photographer's laptops, at least IMO. Also, OS X works great on laptops; it is designed for specific hardware and there are no stupid glitches with suspend, wakeup etc. For a desktop machine, things are less clear because Win7 is very reliable and easy to live with as a desktop OS, so I don't see many reasons to get a desktop Mac instead of a good and much cheaper Win7 machine.

Is there a way on the Win7 side to get a monitor that's as good as the retinabooks?

Not that i know of (if we're talking about laptops). I vaguely remember that there's a Sony Vaio with IPS matrix but I doubt it's even close in resolution and general computer quality. Unfortunately, the rest of the industry is firmly entrenched in TN hell.
