I have the regular 15 inch Macbook Pro with the anti-glare screen and love it. I am sure there is no downside to this model.

Well the retina display is suppossed to be 30 percent more accurate than previous MacBook models but not everything is written for that screen yet.

Supposedly Adobe looks kinda crappy on the retina display.
Abobe has been working on a update.

If you learn about "real" pro level screens
Look at specs for bit depth, color gamut
Built in hardware gamma correction
Apple is not in the game

They've got some of the highest pixel density laptop market. Bit depth isnt a hardware issue and the color gamut covers 99% of sRGB. Unless you're working with LAB, its not really an issue. i'm guessing you're a PC thumper without all the facts?

Can you identify where you got your data?  I was in an Apple store yesterday, asking exactly these questions.  The salesman pulled up the information, and the color gamut on the page he showed me was distinctly less than sRGB, and far less than Adobe RGB, which is what I use for prints (and, I think, so do most people who care about more than web display.)

So, the specs of the Retina display may be a little more relevant than you appreciate.  Or, maybe you're just a Mac fanboy who doesn't really care about performance as long as it has an apple logo on it.

Google "macbook color gamut". Click on the first result. Thats about all the effort it took.

Noted Kevin. Not really interested in getting into that debate anyway.

Monitors For High Quality Imaging Work

Nothing on the new retina displays, but they do discuss the iMac panels and generally a very good article on the subject, especially if you're unsure on the differences between consumer and professional monitors.

Have a fully maxed out Retina 15 and LOVE it. Photoshop slices through huge files with ease. Color wise, fantastic.

Are you saying that having the retina display makes photoshop work faster?
