MacBook Pro Retina : Memory 16 GB : 750 GB Flash Storage :

Very Pleased with this computer, no regrets about buying it. Normally use Aperture to convert from raw and store the photos. Use Photoshop to edit if needed. I often use a wireless mouse, but the track pad does work. I have an external larger monitor, but do not feel I need it very often. Mostly use larger monitor when trying to compare multiple images. My output of images is small compared to many contributors, but do not feel the small screen size holds me back.

If your Mac is like most I would suggest you turn the brightness down about 4 clicks when on AC and when you are running on battery check it because the screen dims some.  Using fn F1 and fn F2.

I had posted the same question somewhere else and am glad to have found this one.


When i posted the similar question I was working on a decision. While I waited for a response I went to the Apple store and made a side-by-side comparison and decided for Stock work it could be a risk (for me). A risk because it seems internally it boosts contrast so one might think the contrast on the image is okay when it may not be. The same thing can be true with the regular MBP which is not as contrasty. One may boost contrast unnecessarily. However, when contrast is too much you can usually see its undesirable effects and backoff.


That wasn't the only reason I didn't go for the Retina version. Not being aboslutely upgradable was.
