Best of the best,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Apple MacBook Pro ME866LL/A 13.3-Inch Laptop with Retina Display (OLD VERSION) (Personal Computers)
I'm not sure what the other reviewers are complaining about. I just upgraded to this 512gb MacBook Pro 13" Retina from a similarly equipped 512gb MacBook Air 13". Let me just say, the difference is phenomenal. Since I commute with the laptop everyday, weight is a big problem for me. Luckily, I've yet to see THAT much of a difference (it's only a pound or so).
Really, working with the Retina screen I feel my eyes are much much more easier to read than the Air. Not only because of the Retina screen, but because the fact that the resolution is bigger at 1280 vs 1440 on the Air. The crispness and size of the text is JUST perfect.
I have not yet experienced any lag on the laptop. Scrolling large size iTunes albums might get a bit jittery but it's barely noticeable. I doubt anyone will choose this over the Ultimate MacBook Air now that the price is $100 cheaper on the Pro.
