Now you are being irrational and commenting for the sake of being argumentative without being logical ... why would people want to read about Pope's resignation on Canon  rumors?
However, computers are very much a part of digital photography ... hence the need to know about any good offers out there.

Aw crap, now I'm curious whether the Pope is a Canon or Nikon guy, sadly, google didn't help :(
Well only Catholics can be "Canonized", and due to his credentials he will not go to the "dark side" ... therefore we can conclude that he is a potential Canon guy ;D

What would YOU call a reasonable price?  Are there other high-res laptops selling for less?

Maybe you meant the air:
$912 Core i5 1.70GHz 4GB RAM 64GB Storage (flash)
Samsung . . . closest thing I could find is $849.99 NP540U3C-A01UB, but it does have a spinning disk drive . . . $800 on sale . .  oh hey, it has Windows 8, so you have to install Linux Mint yourself  ;D

Not like I'm interested that much, but I wonder if this is true...

While Apple's new Retina MacBook Pro includes a display measuring 2880x1800 pixels, the default display options do not allow users to run their systems at that raw resolution. Instead, the extra pixels are used to display a higher level of detail on a canvas representing the previous 1440x900 resolution. As a result, windows and user interface elements appear to be the same relative size as on a 1440x900 15" display, but with four times the detail. Users who wish to use a desktop with apparent resolution higher than 1440x900 can still do so, as System Preferences offers several different options ranging up to 1920x1200.

Those users who want even more screen real estate by tapping into the full 2880x1800 resolution mode of the display can also do so, but the option involves a workaround that is not authorized by Apple. Macworld has more details on the process, which involves using either a third-party app like the paid SwitchResX (as noted in our forums) or one of a number of free options that have sprung up such as Change Resolution.
 
Running a 2880x1800 desktop on a screen measuring only 15.4 inches diagonally obviously results in very small text and user interface elements, but for those willing to sit close enough to their screens to make the onscreen content readable, it may be an interesting option.

As noted by developer Steven Troughton-Smith, users running Windows on the new Retina MacBook Pro can also take advantage of the full display resolution, simply setting the resolution in preferences within Windows.

Of course, I was kidding - more or less.  ;) I have looked high and low for a suitable laptop for light photo editing while on photo trips. I have found nothing in a laptop that would provide the benefits of an IPS panel (whatever the current variant is) like my NEC 2690 including Apple Retina. I don't understand this. The smaller the monitor, angles are even more critical yet nobody does an IPS in a laptop.
