    Greetings all,

    I ran down to the local Apple store at Northpark in Dallas at lunch today. Just so happened that they *just* started unpacking their shipment. I think I purchased the first one from that location, but they said they had a pallet of them.

    I'm working right now, so this is all I could do pic-wise. I also haven't gone much past the initial setup, so nothing to report thus far other than the screen being magnificent.

    Thanks for sharing your experience ZionskS2k. Is it just me or is there a very noticeable glossy / glare quality to the new MacBook Pro Retina laptops?

    Nice machine!

    Unfortunately, we can't see how sharp the screen is because neither the photos you posted nor the monitor I'm looking at are Retina ;) But I'm sure it looks fantastic, having played around with an iPad 3. Have fun!

    The sheen in the pics is from me taking crappy photos. That is from my kitchen, there was a fluorescent light just above it.

    Here is screen cap at default settings. It is less horrible at the "more space" setting, but I don't have a cap of that yet.

    I saw one in the store today. It was somewhat less reflective than the glossy old-style macbook pro, about as reflective as the macbook air.

    I can see it on my retina iPad ;) Everything looks crispy just like the iPad 3, save for the apps not updated for retina much like Chrome is looking horrible on the Retina MBP. Text is text, I don't understand why Chrome looks like that..

    Zoinks, I'm guessing it's running 1440x900, is that right?

    Beautiful machine, for sure.

    So basically it's running at 1440x900 res with double pixels instead of the full 2880x1800 to get more viewable space. Is there any possible way to set the native resolution to 2880x1800 for more workable area? I know this is not practical, but is there even an option for that?

    The most you can set the native resolution to is 1920x1200, so basically you have 1920x1200 usable pixel spaces.
