If anyone can recall, there have been a couple of buzzes with regards to Apple's line of notebook computers, the MacBook. It has been said that the Cupertino company is planning to release a thinner 15 inch model of its popular notebook. Now a report surfaces that the rumored redesigned MacBook Pro will be supporting Retina Displays.
The news came straight from DigiTimes yet again, citing their usual "upstream supply chain" sources, the next generation MacBook Pro will be supporting Retina-capable displays capable of 2880 by 1800 resolution. The said redesigned MacBook Pro will be arriving by the second quarter of 2012.
While the prevailing MacBook models have displays with resolutions ranging from 1680 by 1050 to 1280 by 800, the ultra-high resolution for the new MacBook Pro will further differentiate Apple's products from other brands, commented the sources.
As of now, the current lineup of MacBook Pro have displays with resolution of 1280 × 800 for the 13 inch model and 1920 × 1200 for the 17 inch variant. So if this rumor turned out to be true, this will be the first ever that Apple will be adopting a 2880 x 1800 resolution display. Perhaps in an effort of the company to set itself apart from other companies.
With previous reports, the next generation MacBook Pro is rumored to be a new 15 inch model with a thinner form factor. So will this ultra-thin MacBook be the new notebook where Retina Displays will be introduced? Well, we can only speculate at this point. While DigiTimes isn't exactly known to always hit the nail in the head when it comes to Apple intel, a new redesigned MacBook would be quite cool, so color us cautiously optimistic.
So will you buy a redesigned, Retina Display capable MacBook Pro when it comes out? [via 9to5Mac]Contact Us for News Tips, Corrections and Feedback
