    Am I the only one a bit disturbed that the new retina display is middle of the road for consumer units in whites? thats another strike for doing accurate colors

    too bad you can't upgrade jack on the new one as in aftermarket upgrades which explains them still selling the non retiny display version that you can upgrade.

    You are not.

    I would have greatly preferred the improve the color gamut and black levels of the existing resolutions of MBP's than go "retina".

    At least they've upgraded to an IPS panel. From an above average TN to a below average IPS is still a step up.

    Are you seriously comparing a Sager to a MacBook Pro?

    for color reproducible screen gamut yes. Im actually dismayed how gaming laptops are able to do color accuracy better than laptops supposedly designed for color work etc.

    Count me in on this criticism as well. I also noticed today that the RMBP screen is not as bright. What does Apple have against a wide color gamut? Is it the battery life? Apple has a long history of falling short in the color department.

    The RMBP makes the other MacBook Pros, feel heavy, clunky, and fat looking. I wouldn't be all that surprised if Apple discontinued the fat 13 and the fat 15 altogether once they can bring the price down a bit. Probably after Christmas.
