    Retina Macbook pro vs Macbook pro

    Looking for some feedback interms of springing for a retina display. At first, I was 100% set on it. Then I got to thinking... While most of the time I work at my desk with a 'regular' monitor(s), sometimes I travel and need to work from my laptop.

    When at home, it would be nice to have the retina display for testing but when not plugged into a 'regular' monitor, I'm afraid I"m going to be out of touch with what most most web users will be viewing. I'm mostly a front-end guy so this is particularly important. So, how do others deal with this? What did you decide between the Retina Macbook pro and the Macbook pro?

    While the Retina MacBook Pro is easily the most desirable 13-inch Mac laptop to date, the high price and lack of discrete graphics make it a tough call versus either the more powerful 15-inch Retina Pro or the more affordable 13-inch Air.
    Errr, thanks but you didn't address my question really at all.

    I haven’t thought about this at all yet and don’t see how it would matter to us as front-end developers. But I also don’t have a comparison.
    If you want a retina display but don’t wanna lose contact to the real world then why not get an extra non-retina monitor to check it on?

    Retina displays will probably be the norm in 12 months - you're simply futureproofing At least that's how I'd justify the extra money
