- Speed and features a better discrete video card is really needed in my opinion. i think the video card is a bit lacking if you want to play any games.

Things i love about the MBP with retina display (13inch). The cooling system is very effective and compared to most, almost silent. The thickness of the laptop is perfect in my opinion, not to thin and not to thick but just right. The weight is good as well. It is light but not to light as to feel like it will blow off of your lap or so thin and light it becomes hard to use like the MacBook Air(in my opinion). I never use the CDROM drive and am happy to see it go. But it would be nice if they put a few more USB 3.0 ports or more ports in general in the laptop. Over all i am happy with the product, i will keep it for probably 3 or 4 years at least. If you have the money and like the Retina display i would say definitely buy this laptop. If your on a tight budget, or if you need more powerful video card or hardware consider a different laptop. I love the retina screen and it was worth the 400 or 500 more for just the thinness, weight, cooling system and retina screen.
