Quote:Then I'd say go for the rMBP. I also think the idea that was posted about buying a cheaper laptop for the next two years and then upgrading then... and by then the current rMBP model will be much refined. And no worries! Enjoy whatever system you get!
Quote:Not quite. When browsing FaceBook it dipped as low as ~20 FPS because of the higher resolution -- it's particularly intensive at very high resolutions if I remember correctly. Something about heaps of image decompression.
However that was under Lion. The rMBP now ships with Mountain Lion (and models with Lion installed can be upgraded to Mountain Lion) which uses Core Animation to accelerate web browsing, or even more aspects of web browsing than before, so it's smoother.
