    I have an old Macbook Pro with the oldfashioned type screen that I use to process my photos and I calibrate periodically. I am planning to purchase a new MBP that has a retina display and I was wondering how does that affect image processing considering almost every image will look brighter and sharper with Retina display. Any opinions or suggestions?

    I have a 15" MBP Retina and it works great. But I guess I don't have much frame of reference to compare, as its the computer I've learned how to process on..

    Both will do fine for processing, don't worry, they won't look very different (MBP Penryn, MBP Retina & Cinema Display (30") owner)

    The retina does have just a little more pop though ;) (unfortunately they are all glossy :/)

    Thanks for sharing. I think I might have to print some images out and compare screen to print. Do you calibrate your Retina displays?

    Not my laptops, the retina's color reproduction is quite good, however, i often work with dim screens to save my eyes, and then you do get a bit of a color shift, but if i'm editing or wanting to check the final edit, i turn up the brightness to evaluate, so it's fine ;)
    I have calibrated my 2 Cinema Displays however, as they differed from one another (due to an age/ run-time difference)
