[Chugalug] OT: MacBook for sale. Too cheap?

Actually, you made a false statement about HD movies - passive 3D full HD
movies require 2x 1080p (or 1920 x 2160) - which is actually a higher
resolution (on one axis) than the MBP Retina display offers.  (This is so
both eyes - red & green - can get the full 1080p pixels)

Not to mention the fact that 4K is coming.

And, for the record, I use Photoshop almost everyday on my MacBook Pro.
However, my display isn't retina - I wish it was, but I didn't want to give
up my optical drive, nor my ability to change out the RAM/Hard Drive/etc..

Personally I hate the design of the Retina Display Macbooks because of how
un-repairable/upgradable they are.  That doesn't mean the display is
pointless.

Going back to the original question - I would give you $1000 for that
computer right now.  :)
