Just wondering if anybody has any opinions on retina MacBook vs. 8.1 hi-dpi touchscreen Windows 8.1, specifically regarding usability of Lightroom.

If you buy a MacBook, you get a good screen.

If you buy a Windows laptop, you'll have to shop carefully to find one with a good quality screen. And it won't be the cheapest -- probably in the same ballpark as the MacBook.

As far as everything else is concerned, the two systems will be very, very similar. Obviously, there are differences at the detailed level. But it's just small details and they pretty much boil down to personal preferences.

Six of one and half a dozen of the other.
