We could see higher resolution on the iMac, but I'm not sure how much higher. Also, going to a much higher resolution would drive the price way up right now.Guys i was thinking of getting imac with retina display this year. Do you guys think is there a chance we will be seeing a retina display imac this year.
Apple's definition of "retina display" is based on the normal viewing distance. This means that the iMac probably already has something very close to a retina display given that people tend to sit at least 20 or 30 inches from it. I sit a little more than arms length away from mine, and I can't see any pixels in this text even if I zoom Safari all the way in.The need for retina displays are for handhelds that you hold close to your face... so I thought.
It is so that you cannot distinguish pixels at the normal viewing distance. On my iMac the text is not as crisp as on a Retina iOS device because I can see the anti-aliasing that tries to overcome the lack of pixel density. Crisp text rendering means less eyestrain. Something I would welcome.The need for retina displays are for handhelds that you hold close to your face... so I thought.
