Even with Windows on the laptop, so I knew every game would at least work on it, still no way in hell I'll pay that price for it. That resolution also seems a bit wasted on a small screen.

So thumbs up for the technology but thumbs down for everything else.
i don't think they are catering it for the gaming crowd - the display of diablo 3 is just confirming that apple wants this machine to be abit more all round, as oppose to their last machines which weren't very game friendly

if you look at their webpage for the new mbp, they don't really mention anything about gaming, just showing off the gpu and screen for video and photo editting

Thing is a beast, but it's expensive. I don't know what I would do with it.

no more 17-inch models. All for it since 17 inch is quite heavy and the retina display makes up for the resolution. And about as thin as a macbook air + reduced glare and reflection

I wish apple would bring back their clothing line. The 80s merchandise was glorious

This article gives me deja vu... and yet i dont see to care at all.

I dont understand the appeal of overpriced junk.
