It has the best specs you could get for this price, such as a high-end chip like the quad-core Tegra 3, a high-quality IPS display with wide... viewing angles, and an HD resolution screen that offers about 216 PPI. The Retina Macbook Pro is just 4 PPI higher, so you could argue it has a retina display, too. Anyway, the important thing to note...

The latter has been a problem for Nvidia with Tegra 3, because just as they were starting to get a window of opportunity in t...
