I was first looking at Windows 8.1 ultrabooks with hi-dpi displays -- but it seems like hi-dpi is still kind of hit-or-miss in Windows.

So then I started considering switching back to Mac.

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

Are your questions about how LR (in concert with the OS) deals with or uses the HiDPI screen? Or about the OS in general and other applications deal with or use the HiDPI screen? Or about the hardware of a HiDPI Windows laptop vs the retina MBP?

Really mostly: given two similarly spec'd laptops, say rMBP and Dell XPS both 15" -- is Lightroom "more productive" on either system in one way or another? Or would both be pretty much identical? (So LR itself, rather than OS)
