Supports the June rumor.
Isn't it possible to have OLED as a BTO option?
I think the release will be the week before WWDC, much like the 2007 MacBook Pros.
Perhaps they will make MBP that live up to the "Pro" name? Current displays are pitiful in resolution (at least on 15s)
Would be nice as BTO since I'm sure these new displays are going to be a bit pricey to come standard.
Hell yea. If it comes as a BTO option for the 15" mbp I'd definitely buy one. Here's waiting for June to see what happens.
Could this just be the screen to be used in the "more rumored" 17" educational iMac?
There is already a 17" iMac.
The 17" iMac is dead and buried. Apple a few weeks ago released an $899 20" iMac for education, putting the white 17" iMac out to pasture.
best link ever.....
Behold, the only consumer OLED screen that isn't for a cellphone/pmp
It's only $2500 dollars and has the super high resolution of 960(H) x 540 (V). So who else is hoping for such a screen in the next Macbook?
We will get OLED screens in Macbooks...someday. This is still a few years away though. There are 2-3 PMP players and several cellphones with OLED screens on the market so I imagine the first place we will see OLED screens is in iPods and iPhones.
I think not putting an OLED screen in the next iPod Touch and iPhone would be a mistake in fact. Sony is next in line to release a DAP with an OLED screen.
That's the first gen OLED which hasn't really changed much in a year. The information that I seen is that LG's second gen OLED is already capable of up to 32" and it can be sold for less than 1900$. Cut it down to 13/15/17, it might be much cheaper than 1900$. We don't know much about LG's capability and how far they are into the OLED development.
We just have to see it.
I honestly doubt OLED is coming to Macs this summer or this year and next year.
They could be RGB LED panels, which work just like regular LCDs but use red, green, and blue LEDs instead of white LEDs for better color gamut and saturation. I know Dell sells one, and I think the panel is made by LG.
Yea Dell does have LCDs that uses RGB LEDs backlighting but this topic is talking about OLED which is not the same as RGB LED backlighting.
I know. I think OLED panels are just too expensive and unproven right now, and I don't think Apple is going to offer them this year. RGB LED panel, on the other hand, are not much more expensive than regular panels, and they are widely produced enough that Apple could easily offer them this year. Maybe the rumor was wrong--it is just a rumor.
