Why?

You need the power?


I'm still not convinced yet I need to upgrade my iPad 3.
I'll have to play around with the new one. I just invested in all the accessories for my camera - USB / video etc

What id really like is an iOS 7 build for a larger screen. iOS 7 has been a disappointment

Not compared to the older macs, compare it to an HD screen the 2012 MBP's have. I have an HD screen, ive compared it side by side, it looks nearly identical

Are you an apple apologist ? What are your thoughts on iOS 7

I misread your comment, sorry. Yes retina is just apples "HD" screen, just the same as any other HD screen on a laptop

I compared retina and mom retina in store. The retina is definitely clearer. If you do graphic design or photography, you'll love the retina. I think a regular user will barely see the difference.

Sorry, but you must be losing your eyesight. I own a 30 Cinema display, the largest most pixel packed screen apple made up until the Retina display Macbook Pro. Running at the highest resolution, the MBP has more pixels in the 15" form than my 30" display has. Side by side it is pretty easy to see. Both are running at 2.5K, with the MBP edging the display out by a few hundred more.

It is not scam. Using it for 3d modeling, or photo/video editing and you will see a difference.

I forgot that proper filing systems are only ones made on 20-year old technology and require defragmenting

Yea, seems odd that only Mac owners can view. Figure they would want as many non-Mac owners to watch as possible, converts to the brand etc.

They are targeting their customer base. I don't really see a problem. At least Tim Cook won't come out all sweaty and screaming, bouncing all over the stage to get things "pumped up". Fvcking Balmer.

As for Metro, and the color scheme, I agree to a point, but iOS needed a change. I like the clean feel to everything, but the pastels are annoying. I wish it was more "industrial" in feel and look, but it would turn off the 40 somethings with carbon fiber and metal, not to mention canadians, who just need a little color in their lives.
