"5 star screen on a 3.5 star laptop."4.0 starson by Thunder_God
Pros: Retina display nothing short of immaculate, thin form, light weight.
Cons: Price, GPU underpowered for 2880x1800, not user friendly for upgrades.
Summary: Disclaimer: I love Apple laptops and have owned/used them since 2007, so my criticism is from a positive perspective. That being said, I find the new 15" MBP to be good, but not as great as it could have been. Retina display is simply amazing, but it needs a better GPU as the 650M isn't designed for such a high screen resolution. I love the thin/light form factor. My current MBP is the February 2011 model and it is noticeably thicker, though I still love its portability. Not all pleased that we can't upgrade the RAM/SSD - major misstep from Apple.
I was planning to replace my MBP with the new model, but as much as I love the retina display the drawbacks force me to pass. What I will do is buy a 15" model with the hi-res 1680x1050 display. It has a much better GPU than the AMD 6490M 256MG in my current MBP and it will do a great job at 1680x1050.
Now that my laptop needs are fulfilled, it's on to the fall when the iPhone 5 will be out. Can't wait!!
