Retina displays are the hot topic item around the rumor blogs these days, and today we’ve got word from Joanna Stern, perviously of Engadget and The Verge) during an ABC News report that both the MacBook Pro and iMac lineup will be getting an ultra-high-resolution Retina display.
[quote]The laptop will see the introduction of the “Mac Retina Display,” which is said to have a very high resolution. ABC News has similarly heard from its own sources that both the next MacBook Pro and the iMac would be getting very, very high resolution displays. Apple refreshed its new iPad with a Retina Display in March.[/quote]
The report seems largely based off of 9to5Macs findings; however, Bloomberg has also thrown its hat into the ring this time around, and states that new MacBook Pros with Retina displays will be unvieled at WWDC this year (June 11).
[quote]The MacBook Pro machines, to be unveiled at Apple’s annual developers conference starting June 11, also will feature high- definition screens like those on the iPhone and iPad, as well as flash memory to cut startup times and extend battery life, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the plans haven’t been made public.[/quote]
That’s two seemingly independant verifications that the new MacBook Pro and potentially iMac will be getting Retina displays. If you run a website in any capacity, now’s the time to start figuring out how to serve up Retina capable graphics to your visitors. Things are about to get a whole log blurrier come WWDC.
