The retina screen on the 15" MBP is simply beautiful. Everything from text to photographs just looks better. I actually dislike using my wife's iMac now because I can see the pixels in text.
Saying all those extra pixels are wasted is just silly. They're available to be a larger desktop any time I want. Fact is, the vast majority of the time I would prefer to have ultra-crisp text and graphics in a desktop size that's appropriate for the size of the screen.
