The Macbook Pro with retina display is a fantastic machine...
Obnoxiously ginormous versions of those pics
I absolutely love the machine. The screen is great and there is nothing slow about this machine at all. Just fantastic.
The only thing I don't like about it - it's not 17", I just like that form factor better.
Oh, I never really paid attention to the osx lion wtf thread as I never intended to install it, but I have no choice with this fine piece of hardware. Holy fuck, how did Lion ever get released? Does anyone at Apple actually use it?
Lion is SOOO annoying that if a new osx release wasn't imminent I would consider returning the machine.
You can probably get away with having a few more columns in your code, with that display.
What, specifically, do you dislike about Lion? I must have grown accustomed to it, but the only complaint (or confusion as to why they did it) was the scrollbar graphics. Launchpad has grown on me, because I use it frequently now. Last I read, the next major release is rumored to come out late this month.
