    So I heard the new 2012 iMac is sharper than the older generations and almost compared to a retina display.. is this true? :confused:

    Pixel density is the same as my old 2009 iMac, BUT subjective this new screen is indeed sharper. It will have something to do with the antiglare and the fact that the "gap btween the glas and the actual lcd is'nt there anymore
    If i compare the lettering in safari on the 2009 model and my new 2012 27 inch it looks sharper on the new one.......but it is not retina yet......
    Color accuracy is better too.
    My 2 cents.......

    I'd agree, the anti glare does make a difference which I picked up right away co Inge from a 2011 27" to a new one...more definition...retina it's not, but there is certainly an improvement
