I produce 2-6 minute interview-driven videos that use the process-intensive multicam features of Final Cut Pro X. is the 13" MBA a good option? I fear the price jump of moving to an MBP just to get that discrete graphics chip.
A friend recently bought a MacBook Pro (retina display) and asked me to recommend a good external Bluray drive, for watching his Bluray collection on. I told him to forget about discs. Just rip your library and buy movies from VUDU ... He won't Any ideas gdgt community? Thanks
Planning on using it with my 50inch 1080p display for gaming, and was wondering if the gaming performance would be any better
Does the resolution scaling really scale the resolution or just the relative size of UI elements? If I show a photo on screen, I'd like that to use all the pixels in the display, not have that scaled. The highest "scaled" resolution option on the 13" is 1680x1050. I want more screen real estate than that, but I don't need to run native resolution either. My Asus 13.3" at 1920x1200 is just about right. Can I run that on a 13" MBP Retina with one of those graphics utilities out there? Thanks.
Do you own one of these computers? Are you a Diablo III or World of Wacraft player? What have been your experiences with this computer? I've seen a lot of mixed reviews all over the net about how this machine fares with Blizzard games, and I'd love some more opinions from those who've tried it.

I'm trying to avoid getting the new machine, and then having to upgrade OS shortly after.
I have the 2011 MacBook Pro, and two of my biggest complaints with it are that the fan is so loud I pretty much have to wear headphones when I watch video (which always makes it spin up), and the laptop gets very hot, even when it's barely being used. The case on the upper-left (near where the power plugs in) gets so hot it almost feels like it'll burn me if I touch it too long. And it can't actually be placed on a lap without some kind of pad.
Does the asymmetric fan in the new retina display...
I'm in london now and too excited to get a macbook pro with retina screen. please tell me where i could buy it
This laptop has two thunderbolt ports.
Can I run just one thunderbolt display from it? With the laptop screen?
Can you go all out with two thunderbolt displays and the native screen?
I'm hoping a solution like this will be available soon.
