Yah its a long wait now. I ordered a 2.6 model with the 512 gig flash drive and upgraded the ram to 16 weeks. Long wait for a computer, but thats what you go through I guess ordered when its just released.

One issue I was wondering about has been answered and it is a good thing for the vision challenged

The program is called SetResX, and it is a free menu bar program that allows you to set your Retina MBP display to a number of desktop resolutions, including:

• 2880 x 1800
• 2560 x 1600
• 2048 x 1200
• 1680 x 1050
• 1440 x 900 (no HiDPI)
• 1280 x 800
• 1024 x 768
• 800 x 600
• 640 x 480

This Is What A Retina MacBook Pro Desktop Looks Like At 2880 x 1800 | Cult of Mac | Digg Topnews

This means those with vision issues will be able to get a reasonably crisp screen ( 4 times better than non-retina displays ) at the lower resolutions to suit their vision needs.

In Australia and the web site is out of date.
Lots of good deals on Retinas, previous high end MacPros and current MacPro 6 core bundles in stock. [email protected]

Retina MacBook Pros run three external displays, refreshed Airs get dual external display support

the new MacBook Airs indeed support two external Thunderbolt displays thanks to the recent “Mac OS X Lion Update (Mid-2012 MacBook Air)” update that “improves external display support.” Apple has not updated the device’s specs page to reflect support for dual external Thunderbolt monitors.

They had some in stock over at Newmarket, right up until closing (when I bought the last one there). I grabbed 2.6 GHz,512GB one. Looking forward to get FCP going on it.

Hmmm the ancient LC is 17 years old and the eMac is 8. The average age thus being 12 and a half years. Both still do everything they could do at the time they were purchased and at a speed a good deal faster than me.

What it comes down to is this. If your needs remain static your computer will last until it fails. If they evolve, as Systems and applications advance to meet hardware improvements, then you will need to update your hardware much more frequently.

Obviously Games and Video are the two areas of interest that drive most home users into purchasing the latest and greatest.
