    It’s great if you’re lucky, just ok if you’re not, September 23, 2012

    I’ve had mine for just under two months, and had to have it replaced twice. If you do a quick google for Macbook Pro Retina Image Retention you’ll see what I’m talking about. Apparently, Apple uses two manufacturers to supply their displays, Samsung and LG. The Samsung ones are fine, the LG ones show ghosting or image retention (IR) after a month or two of use. Both my first one and the replacement had LGs and the IR problem. They are no longer offering to repair or replace the LGs, stating instead that it’s “expected behavior” and “within specs.” I’m a huge fan of Apple, but this whole process has left a pretty bad taste in my mouth.

    Other than the display being sub-par, the computer is fast, light, and all-in-all a nice machine. But the display is the headline feature, and you have a fifty percent chance of getting a good one. I can’t stand knowing that someone else paid the same amount of money, but got a superior product.

    Update: The truly awful Apple customer service I’ve had to deal with the past week has prompted me to drop my rating from 3 stars to 1. Until the issues are resolved, this product is not worth it.

    Total power, total performance, best ever…but not for all., June 25, 2012

    This review is from: Apple MacBook Pro MC976LL/A 15.4-Inch Laptop with Retina Display (NEWEST VERSION) (Personal Computers)

    UPDATED 9-21-12…Systems in use for 3 months.

    Pros: A total powerhouse, best laptop display ever made, perfect for professionals, AppleCare, portability, quad core Ivy Bridge processors in a laptop, USB 3.

    Cons: You pay for quality, expensive for casual use.

    Who it’s for: Professionals, designers, media-heavy users, video and photo editors, travelers, students, performance-minded users, anyone needing both performance and portability.

    Who it isn’t for: Casual or light users, those who think they’ll need to expand, people who hate Apple and just don’t like their products regardless.

    Why 5 stars: It’s easy to criticize a device for its shortcomings, but in the end Apple has designed one of the best laptops ever sold. Its performance and value are off the charts, and it would be disingenuous to penalize it for the minor “wish list” we could draw up. It succeeds in the most important areas (like CPU power), sacrificing in relatively unimportant ones (no ethernet connection).

    The new Macbook Pro Retina

    This is a review from a real owner, not opinion…not discussion. I work in a design company (web, print, video, apps). What I look for in a system is reliable, efficient performance at the best value. The new MacBook scores off the charts in these areas – let’s look at why.

    POWER: I had two designers who’d outgrown their iMac i7s, running 90% CPU capacity (three words: Adobe Master Suite). The new machine represents a massive performance boost with the new CPUs. It’s nice to see Apple include the quad core Ivy Bridge on these…at times they’ve been slow to update the CPUs on the MacBooks. And although the display gets all the press, it’s really the other hardware that makes the system. It SCREAMS, and can handle a massive amount of abuse (we tested editing video AND using Photoshop AND streaming Netflix AND running a dozen other programs in the background – try that with most machines and watch them curl up and die). If you’re animating the latest Pixar release you might want to look at alternatives, but for anything else this is a perfect business machine, and we really like the added “oomph” when editing video or running intense graphics.

    DISPLAY: The display is amazing, but more importantly it’s useful. You can now edit video in full 1080p while leaving room on the desktop for any necessary toolbars, etc. And my designers tell me that this is the first MacBook they can design on in terms of display correctness – previous models didn’t really live up to their standards for that, and they’d have to double-check designs on their desktops. UPDATE NOTE: Over the summer, there were some reports of image retention on LG-produced screens. I researched this, and could find no major tech site reporting this issue as substantial. Our two units are LG and have been turned ‘on’ ten hours a day for the past three months. We have no image issues. The complaints I could find are generally posted in open forums, so I’m not sure how accurate the info is…but we’re not worried due to the awesomeness of AppleCare and the guys at our local Genius Bar.

    Some nerdy talk about the display: Mostly for pros, here are some features of the display as reported by independent sources. This unit diplays 99% of the sRGB color space, a significant spike from earlier MacBooks (71%). It also incorporates a new LCD surface, doing away with the cover glass and substantially decreasing glare while preserving contrast. Users will want to be extra-careful since damage to the display surface is now to the LCD directly, but the tradeoff is that this system is massively anti-reflective (something we noted right away). And Apple has left the viewing angle very wide – most other brands use a narrow angle on their laptops to save battery. Imagine a ‘cone of brightness’…the wider this is, the more power is consumed by the display. If you make this narrower the battery lasts longer, but the display is less reliable for design since the image distorts as you move to the side, even by a couple of inches. The designers here at my company confirm that you can rely on the display – they report that you have to move pretty far to the side before it changes. Overall…for a designer…the new display is a bar above anything else, even the high-end monitors we have here (including Apple and other brands).

    DESKTOP/LAPTOP HYBRID: We were also sold on the portability. We liked that these have the power of a desktop (and we needed that power), but we also love the portability. My designers like the ability to easily move workstations, and I like being able to send their work home with them (don’t tell them I said that, ha.)

    UPGRADABILITY: Some will gripe that you can’t easily open this machine. They’ll moan that you’ll want to expand and upgrade. I don’t presume I can build a better system than Apple’s design team, and the iPad has…

    This is the best Windows notebook you can buy, July 16, 2012

    This review is from: Apple MacBook Pro MC976LL/A 15.4-Inch Laptop with Retina Display (NEWEST VERSION) (Personal Computers)

    I bought my first PC in 1987 and I had managed to avoid Apple products since then. I admit it, I’m biased. I never liked Apple’s OS’s or most of their hardware. I never cared for Steve Jobs either. However, despite my bias, I’m also rational. And the simple fact is that there is currently no better notebook for my needs than this one. I had to replace my Windows notebook and after a lot of research I found that there is simply nothing else on the market that matches this notebook’s power, weight, and silent/cool operation. And of course, we all know the screen is unmatched. So, in a moment of weakness I fell to the Dark Side and bought an Apple product. As you can see above, I actually bought this product here at Amazon. I’ve been using it for about 3 weeks now for 10+ hours per day.

    I can’t say a thing about how this notebook performs on the Mac OS side of things because I run Windows 7 on it using Bootcamp (making sure I could do this was a key part of my research before buying). Fortunately, everything runs great on it using Windows 7. I’m a software developer and have been using Visual Studio, SQL Server, and Oracle without any problems. The screen is awesome. The notebook remains cool and I think I’ve heard the cooling fans running only a couple times. Since I travel quite a bit, what I love most about it is the light weight and thinness.

    So, even if you’re a die-hard Windows user like me I can whole-heartedly recommend this notebook. The only caveat I’d add for Windows users is that the keyboard is less than optimal for us. Apple’s “delete” is our “backspace”. Our “delete” is “fn” + “delete”. Our PrintScreen is “shift” + “fn” + “f11″. And there are a few others I won’t bore you with, hopefully you get the idea. In the big scheme of things it’s a minor annoyance considering how great everything else works on this notebook.

    The only thing I dislike about this notebook is that big Apple logo on the back. Anyone know where I can get nice big sticker with Bill Gates’ face to cover it up? In spite of that, I still have to give this notebook 5 stars. Again, I’m biased, but I’m also rational.
