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.

While I've been crying about moving past 1080p for the longest time I'm not sure ultra-resolution mobile displays is what I really want.

Especially since you know they're just going to quadruple the size of UI elements and making the entire resolution bump moot.

I'd happily settle for such a resolution on a 24" desktop display though. One that doesn't cost an arm and a leg that is, or include oodles of useless features.

What about CURRENT 30" monitors pushing 2560x1600?

Really, because iPhone 4 has the highest pixel density, with a sub 4" screen, and it looks AMAZING.

You want new tech for the price of current tech? You're juss cheap if you ask me.

This will be sweet if it is indeed true especially since they maintain a superior 16:10 screen ratio (16:9 computer screens should be purged and banished).

Yeah, but you're not gonna look at a laptop from 20-30cm away unless you're drunk or have some serious health issues...

Just sayin...

I see hundreds of people everyday using their phone or portable computer. The distance at which they use them is about equal, arms length (Laptop on a lap and someone texting on a phone). Anyone using a phone at a foot or less from their eyes has some pretty bad eyesight already. Just sayin...

Why the [censored] would the distance from a 3.5" screen be the same as on a display almost 4 to 5x the size, regardless of pixel count? Are you retarded or is this April Fools day?... Nope, not April 1st, so...
