[MacRumors] Apple to Launch 2880x1800 Resolution 'Retina Display' MacBook Pro in Q2 2012? - Page 6

Could we please not turn this thread into a OSX vs Windows debate?

please make this true. a 16:10 27" IPS with that resolution would be amazing !

Won't happen. The displays will cost too much for the company. Better yields with 16:9. You thought Apple actually cared?

Wow, nice. But it's apple, I can't afford it.

This is essentially the same thing as the "Retina" on the iPhone (UI dimensions kept the same, but increased detail) so essentially it's running the same dimensions as a 1440x900 resolution, but doubled the detail. I'm sure in certain situations the "Retina" can be shut off and go back to the normal resolution, like for gaming. This wouldn't run at the native 2880x1800 resolution, I can tell you that, it'd be impossible to read such small font at a laptop distance

I'd actually get one of these if it wasn't going to go in that rumored 15" MacBook Air. I need dedicated graphics power, not Intel integrated. This does sound like Apple could easily market this new MBA as the first ultrabook to have a Retina display. Ugh...

Remember the Nintendo 3DS? We had a 26" monitors (well, we had one) with that tech in early 2010.
We have seen fold-able PDAs (bendy-screen stuff) last year as well.
The simple fact is that there is ZERO tech out right now for a 2880x1800 resolution screen in a 15" form factor. It simply doesn't exist as of yet. Right now the best anyone can get is a 27" @ 4k by 3k, and thats in a desktop monitor thats nearly impossible to run. If it was even remotely possible, I would have seen it at one of the conventions i've been to. So far I havent. When anyone sees that tech there, its just a matter of time (probably a year) until the tech becomes affordable and producible for mass consumption.

You can easily run 4K resolutions with medical imaging graphics adapters like those from Barco. Again, though, that's medical imaging equipment (display and card).

Ivy Bridge Supports 4096x4096 did you even read the OP?

Edit: 16:10 ratio too. Right?

any of them could, that's not to say it could power any games, but this is clearly intended for work, not play, so again, any GPU will do

im not being anti-apple, but to be honest, it will become one of these three:

1) it's not gonna happen (or at least it's delayed)
2) it's gonna happen, and that resolution will be supported by a 6870M
3) it's gonna happen, and the resolution will be supported by something actually good like a 6970M or beyond, but even the 15" version will cost $2500 or above.


will be nice to know such a thing exist (which supposedly stimulates competition), but I don't see it will be as accessible as apple claim it to be (be it in terms of the amount of time it takes to get here, or in terms of cost)

^this
It sounds like a plausible idea, but I'll have to see what on earth will a resolution of this caliber will be used for on a tiny screen. Frankly, I'm doing perfectly fine with 1280x800 on a 13" MB and 1680x1050 on a 22" monitor. I think that we should start to raise resolutions on TVs and desktop monitors before we consider increasing them for portable or mobile devices.
