Why did 13 inch macbook airs they have a 1440 by 900 resolution but decided to keep the 1280 by 800 resolution on the 13 inch macbook pros that were released after those MBA?
Because the Pros use the same screen technology that has been used since... 2008. It's costly to rework the fabs for a different kind of screen.
On the other hand, the Air uses a completely different screen that's thinner, and based on newer technology so it can afford more pixels. What it can't afford is better color quality, and when Apple decides to revamp the Pro line, no doubt the 13" would have the same resolution but with better colors. Or we might even see a 2560 x 1600 screen for the 13" for HiDPI. In such a case, the 1280 x 800 resolution on the 13" right now makes perfect sense (when they double it).
Yea that makes sense. Alright well thanks for the replies you guys. So Maybe about the next refresh or whenever, they may include the new HiDPI screens. But in all honesty i still think that may take awhile but hopefully im wrong.
