Yea, I know what your mean about the glare on the retina, not too bad as the screen is good and bright if you need it to be, but I think the fact that you can view constant colour and contrast at quite a ridiculous angle kinda out weighs the refections.

Editing in the field on a laptop it like listening to music on earphones while walking on a busy street, yes you can hear the music but it will should much better on your home system.

For me I'm use to them and like the way they operate. I'd buy another one with out considering a PC.

I complain about my work laptop all the time as well (also a windows machine). However my complaints are all due to corporate IT crap. Not allowing us to purchase machines needed for what we do, blocking us from changing some settings ..... just crap like that. A lot of work machines are that way IT says its helping but all it does is cause headaches for the user.

Stop spreading this without benchmarks and proof. Cost for cost a windows machine will blow a Mac out of the water but OS simplicity IS easier on OSx for a new computer user though but seriously show facts that says that macs are better punch for punch machines if you are going to make statements like this. It confuses people who do not know better and you spread misinformation.

For clarity that should be cost for cost some machines sold with windows will be better. (You can still find laptops without an OS, or sold with ones that aren't Mac or Windows, but you likely have to go looking for them.) There are still lots of machines out there which are sold with windows preinstalled that will cost you more for what the hardware can do, and some with really questionable mobile processors.

But the real point is that there are a few lines of apple products vs the many many many lines of products offering windows. Apple products sit at a premium price range and cover a middle of the road to upper tier performance space in the laptop world, where as competitors cover the very bottom of the barrel to upper tier performance and spread their price range over cut throat bargain to high premium price.

So you can find windows systems that are cheaper for their horsepower, a very similar price, or even slightly more expensive than a comparable apple product. But they will all have various pros and cons, and you should look to a system that meets your needs and wants. (For example, some people will go on and on about how much better an apple laptop is because it can drive a huge external display, but that is kind of a useless feature if you only ever use the built in screen.)

Enjoy the new system. If you haven't already I would suggest going into the System Preferences, and then look through the trackpad settings. Forget what all is enabled by default, but I remember having to set a few things my self to get a few of the features I really like.

Flipping between multiple desktops is very nice in some work flows.

Google will also be your friend, and don't be scared of the command line. There will be minor things that bug you about using the system, and I would suggest not hesitating to google the issue and see if anyone has a decent solution for it.

Good luck, have fun.
