“Apple is a very smart retailer, the company knows how to set its stores up and it leaves absolutely nothing to chance. When I walked into the store, I made the mistake of looking to my right as I was going in. I noted the new “Retina’ 13-inch Macbook Pros,” Jim Lynch writes for Technology and Other Musings. “I thought to myself ‘Hmm. I wonder what those retina screens look like? It couldn’t hurt to peek at one.’ And that’s just what I did. I was quite impressed with the resolution and gorgeous looks of OS X in retina.”

“After a few more minutes, I decided that the retina Macbook Pros were neat but I needed to go get my Macbook Air. I walked over to the section that had the Airs and started looking at the 11-inch Macbook Air,” Lynch writes. “Damn, that screen was UGLY compared to the 13-inch Retina Macbook Pro. I mean, it just looked pixelated and nasty compared to the high resolution icons on the Dock on the 13-inch Retina Macbook Pro. I knew instantly that my quest for an 11-inch Macbook Air was doomed.”

5 reasons why I love my 13-inch Macbook Pro with Retina Display:
#5 Portability
#4 Form Factor
#3 Speed
#2 No Dedicated Graphics Card
#1 Retina Display
