The display has great resolution but is only average in every other respect. It is IPS but white LED not RGBLED, doesn't even cover full sRGB gamut much less AdobeRGB, no matte anti-glare option, viewing angles are only so-so..
The graphics card is relatively weak also. These are the reasons most 'creative professionals', at least in the graphics/design/architecture/film industries, continue to do their 'real work' on workstation notebooks like dell precision or hp elitebook, both of which have screens which absolutely blow away the macbook.
I have the new macbook with retina display, it is great and portable.. but its screen is quite lackluster compared to the panel in my dell precision.
