Apple fans have been oohing as well as ahhing given a MacBook Pro with Retina display was voiced a couple of weeks ago. Let’s face it, a arrangement looks incredible! With Retina displays starting to have inroads in to a universe of Mac, gdgt’s Ryan Block motionless to take a demeanour during what shade resolutions would be compulsory upon a rest of a Mac line to grasp a pixel firmness identical to which upon a latest MacBook Pro.
What Block did was to figure out a stream pixel firmness as well as distance of Mac displays, afterwards figure out what it would take to proceed a 220 pixel per in. (PPI) arrangement upon a Retina arrangement MacBook Pro. It’s not only a doubling of pixel density; Block remarkable which a 11″ MacBook Air already has a 135 PPI arrangement which wouldn’t need to be doubled to grasp Retina quality.
Block’s formula have been fascinating:
13″ MacBook Air
Current Resolution: 1440 x 900, Estimated Retina Resolution: 2560 x 1600
13″ MacBook Pro
Current Resolution: 1280 x 600, Estimated Retina Resolution: 2560 x 1600
11″ MacBook Air
Current Resolution: 1366 x 768, Estimated Retina Resolution: 2200-2300 x 1200-1300
27″ iMac as well as Thunderbolt Display
Current Resolution: 2560 x 1440, Estimated Retina Resolution: 5120 x 2880
Current Resolution: 1920 x 1080, Estimated Retina Resolution: 3840 x 2160
(Block thinks a 21.5″ Retina iMac would get a strike on top of which resolution)
Of course, this is all pristine conjecture. What do we think? Will Apple deliver Retina displays opposite a Mac product line in a foreseeable future? Let us know in a comments.
