Considering purchase of a TBD to work alongside my Mac Book Pro Retina but notice along with the many rave reviews there are many complaints regarding connectivity, flickering, cable too short, audio problems, screen too glossy (no anti glare option) and no retina display (perhaps as a purchase option). Does Apple have track record for addressing / fixing these type of observations and if so when can an improved TBD be anticipated? Ask as obviously I'd like to hold off till then given the expense of such an item. Thanks

MacBook Pro (Retina, Mid 2012), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    I'm sure that there will be an upgrade to the existing TB display in 2013 - as it's about due dor an overhaul. The only things I forecast changing will be a slimmer design and USB 3.0 ports. If you can live without those, there's no time to buy like the present. I don't expect, at all, "Retina" TB displays - no GPUs save on upcoming Mac Pros could handle those graphics.

     

    So if a slimmer design and USB 3.0 ports are tops on your list, don't buy the current model. No one knows when any new models will be announced - along with the new Mac Pro, I would imagine - so it's anyone's guess as to what will be new in 2013.
