A customer of mine is not able to say if she owns a Retina Display. She sent this info:

15-inch (1680 x 1050)
NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M 256 MB graphics

Can I understand from it, if she owns a retina display?

Ask her for a screenshot (command-shift-3 or 4). If it's massive, she's got Retina.

  • This is a workaround maybe, not what he's directly asking for.

From apple website:

When you pack so many pixels into a display — over 4 million on the 13‑inch model and over 5 million on the 15‑inch model — the results are positively stunning. The pixel density is so high, your eyes can’t discern individual pixels. Images take on a new level of realism. A spectacular 2560-by-1600 resolution on the 13‑inch MacBook Pro and an equally impressive 2880-by-1800 resolution on the 15‑inch MacBook Pro let you see more of your high-resolution images with pixel-for-pixel accuracy. And text is so sharp, you’ll feel like you’re reading email, web pages, and documents on a printed page. MacBook Pro with Retina Display - Features

but i'd dig more if i want to be sure and ask for model number.

  • You mean a number engraved on the mac surface? And how do I know this is a model number with/without retina?
