David Sparks has some sage advice for people like me who are tempted by the idea of a Retina iMac:
Having used a retina MacBook Pro now for two years, I can tell you I love it. After all of this time I still sometimes look at text on this screen and just drool. I’m so spoiled. If Apple releases a retina iMac I’m sure it is going to be gorgeous. I do, however, have a few tips if you are thinking about this currently-mythical device.
His fourth tip is the best one: Don’t let yourself be tempted. Don’t even look at it.
