    I got that off this advice from Apple: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht5452

    It also says right on the back of the box.

    Take a screen capture, open the result in iphoto and look the resolution of the image. It is rather obvious by looking at the text on the display. If you can easily see dots in the characters, its not retina. There is also two microphone holes, one at the top and one on the back near the one on the top.
