Apple The only review that matters - as detailed and in-depth as ever. "I'm giving the MacBook Pro with Retina Display our bronze Editor's Choice award. Making it the first Mac to ever receive one. It would have been a silver had the software story been even stronger (iWork, Mountain Lion, Office and Photoshop being ready at launch would have been a feat worth rewarding). And it would have been a gold had Apple been able to deliver all of that but without sacrificing end-user upgradability." The device has performance issues which Mountain Lion will address (to a degree), but for the rest, AnandTech's review details - without being pro or anti-anything - just how good this new MBP really is. As a sidenote, Windows 8 on the retina display further confirms the classic desktop is dead to Microsoft: it still can't handle high-DPI displays properly. With the desktop going the way of the dodo, why would the company make it so?

1. I - and most consumers - own a car we cannot service. The thing under the hood is a thing of beauty but I honestly don't even know where to put in the oil.

2. It's not a small shop in CA that services your Mac. It's the largest company (by market cap) on Planet Earth with hundreds of locations globally (and in my case, one is 10 minutes walk from my office, another 20 minutes drive from my house).

Better yet, said company won't actually service your new retinal Mac, they will simply give you a new one, that day, while you wait, and they will helpfully transfer all your stuff for you for free!

I do wish I could upgrade the ram but, well, I ordered the 16 gb version last week - have to wait 3 more weeks.
