    If possible, and seeing your work at 72dpi is very important, I'd try to either keep an old Mac for testing or grab a cheap 27" display you can occasionally hook your MBP into.

    After grabbing a Retina MBP, I've switched my web design workflow to make things as resolution-independent as possible. You don't want to be designing assets for one particular pixel density anymore. Seeing how terrible sites I designed previously look on the Retina screen, I want to avoid that ever happening in the future. It's best to avoid thinking of 72dpi as the web's "default" pixel density - in three or four years, it's a pretty sure bet at least a very sizeable minority of web users will be on devices with hiDPI screens.
