Apple working on uber-hi-res MacBook Pro

Written by



2880 x 1800 apparently


Apple is said to be embracing an impressive 2880x1800 screen for next MacBook Pro update, tipped for the second quarter of 2012.

While high-end 17-inch MacBooks currently ship with 1920x1200 screens, most of the MacBook range still packs 15.4- and 13.3-inch panels in 1440x900 or 1280x800 resolutions. For a company that prides itself on innovation, Apple has been rather slow to transition to 16:9 screens and it seems to be sticking with 16:10 for the time being.

Digitimes believes the new high res screens will help “differentiate” Apple’s high-end gear from the competition. This seems like an understatement. While most high-end laptops max out at 1920x1080, event today Apple’s 1920x1200 offer a bit more legroom, so to speak.

To put things in perspective, 2880x1800 translates into 5.1 megapixels, while 1920x1080 is just north of 2 megapixels. So, Apple users will have something to be smug about and this time around who could blame them.
