    I want to buy a notebook with support for 1920x1920 with 60Hz refresh rate.
    I guess all rMB models just support 1920x1920 with 30Hz?

    As a sidenote, how about the latest 2014 MacMini (base model), it should support 1920x1920 with 60Hz, right? I have seen a thread about a similar resolution (but widescreen) where the latest MacMini base model supports 60Hz.

    Just curious, do you mean 1920x1080 @ 60Hz? In which case I know the Mini would support it, and after looking at the MacBooks tech specs, it should have no problem as well.

    The resolution of my monitor is 1920x1920. Its quadratical and the resolution maybe similar to "3K"?

    You have a square monitor? Cool! Show us a picture.

    A 1920x1920 monitor contains the same number of pixels as Apple's Thunderbolt Display (2560x1440), so it should. However, that's an odd resolution so I can imagine a scenario where Apple's display settings would choke on the EDID. You might need to use SwitchResX or some such.

    Huh, didn't know that square monitors existed, at least not with a 1:1 ratio like yours. I though 4:3 was closest we got. But yeah, I'd anticipate it could support that resolution

    Yeah, I misread that resolution as well as I've never heard of it before. Technically it should work, unless, as mentioned, the Macbook doesn't offer that resolution as an output option.
