After the introduction of the 15″ retina Macbook Pro, apple also unveiled this 13″ Macbook pro. Native resolutie: 2560 x 1600, maximum visible resolution: 1680 x 1050 (see also The retina myth). Comes with 8GB of RAM and SSD, this is a lovely machine to own I’m sure.
So here it is, the long awaited upgrade for laptop displays, Apple introduces a 16:10 2880×1800 15″ Macbook. Hurray! Expensive? Yes, it features an SSD and a less-glare display. Can’t wait to get my fingers on one of these babies. Finally a laptop on which you look at your code and have a tablet simulation running beside.

It also has a 15.4-inch Retina display that boasts a resolution of 2880 x 1800 and 220 ppi. Not surprisingly, Apple was quick to point out this makes it the “world’s highest resolution notebook display.”
Well, there we have it, it’s just a question of time we hope before others take the challenge and create what we’ve been waiting for for so long.
At the moment this site went live there was, to our knowledge, only one laptop available that has a display resolution of 1920×1200 (WUXGA) and that is Apple’s Macbook Pro. It’s the 17″ model, which is fine, but remember, in the days that 16:10 laptops were common, a lot of 15″ laptops had this resolution as well.
But let’s not complain and thank Apple for the last 1200+ laptop on the planet that is still produced.
