And to me, the retina display is what convinced me to shell out the extra money.
I know for general day to day use you woulnd't want to compare a pc and lap top.
My point was more geared towards individuals who are going to need that kind of power generally are not going to do that type of work on the go, but rather, at a desk or in an office. So whether they have a PC or lap top is irrelevant.
