Personally, I will take wider gamut over higher resolution. YMMV.
But this is a laptop, and like other laptops it's a 6bit display that uses dithering to obtain "millions" of colors. But it isn't an 8bit display. This means the battery will last longer. It's more than adequate for preliminary editing and for web stuff and the like more than enough in color quality.
To me this isn't about "more resolution" ... in fact it's just the opposite. It's about eliminating resolution from the equation. On LCD displays things normally only look good at the native resolution. But with the retina MBP, you can pick pretty much any resolution you want, and the screen looks good. As mentioned in the previous post, I also keep my resolution set to one notch above the "best for retina display". the best for retina display shows the same screen real estate as the previous standard MBP, 1440x900. If you use that setting, the display works just like the new iPad ... 4 pixels are used to show a single pixel ... the screen appears virtually identical to a previous MBP (ok a little sharper) but I had the higher resolution MBP, and using the next scaled setting shows more screen and is equivalent to what a 1680x1050 screen shows. There are 5 built in "scale" settings on the retina MBP, which show the equivalent of 1024 x 640, 1280 x 800, 1440 x 900, 1680 x 1050 and 1920 x 1200 resolutions. With switchresx you can set it to almost any resolution you want and most of them look really good (I tried 3840 x 2400? ... lol, tough to see any buttons to get it back to a readable resolution) So the retina MBP really doesn't have a "resolution" ... it's anything you want. Just a choice of how little or how big you want stuff to be.
That was a great review (as usual) and I hadn't even noticed the reflections. I moved away from matte screens a long time ago, and pretty well tune out all reflections or slightly adjust the screen for annoying ones, but after reading the article I compared my new MBP to my last one, and the reflection control is pretty amazing. This is really a sweet display.
One thing I didn't see in the review was how good the battery life is. I've been browsing the internet for over an hour or so now, and I have 7.5 hours of batter life left. wow ...
I'll have to crank it up with some CS6 and LR tomorrow to see how the battery does, but guessing it'll still be pretty sweet.
