News tagged ‘Retina Display’
Apple has just launched a new TV commercial for the MacBook Pro unveiled yesterday, focusing on the machine’s breakthrough Retina display.
“The radical new MacBook Pro with Retina display. Innovation in every dimension”.
While Apple has run several high-profile ad campaign for Macs such as “Switch” and “Get a Mac”, the company rarely promotes specific Mac products in television ads. But with the Retina display and the new form factor in the new MacBook Pro, the company is obviously interested in attracting widespread attention to this product.
Here is a nice next-generation MacBook Pro hands-on video from Engadget:
Today Apple introduced new line of MacBook Air and MacBook Pro. Apple also showed the new MacBook Pro with retina display. Let's compare the specs:
Thanks again! You guys are the best.
KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has been a reliable source of information on unannounced Apple products, expects that the company could introduce an entirely new MacBook model at the next week’s Worldwide Developers Conference.
According to 9to5Mac, Apple is going to update “at least four” out of company’s five Mac lines at Worldwide Developer Conference on June 11. Apple’s current Mac families are MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, iMac, Mac Pro and Mac mini. The most likely candidate for an update is the MacBook Pro that has been reported by multiple sources to be adopting a slimmer form factor with the upgrade.
At this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) Apple is likely to present new software features in iOS and OS X, and refresh its Mac line up.
Analyst Shaw Wu said on Friday that a new Maps application in iOS to be unveiled at WWDC later this month will be a "greatly enhanced" version with 3D capability. The app was internally developed by Apple and allows the company to move away from Google.
Apple is testing multiple next-generation iPhones and rumors say that at least one of these devices has a brand new display.
The iPhone display has always been 3.5 inches measured diagonally with a 3:2 aspect ratio. The old models had 320 x 480 resolution, the latest iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S have incredible 640 x 960 Retina Display.
It looks like this is about to change...
According to CNET’s
Senior Analyst in DisplaySearch Richard Shim said that a 15.4-inch Retina display with 2880x1800 resolution and 220 ppi density currently costs about $160, compared to the 68$ Apple spends on displays in current 15-inch MacBook Pro models.
9to5Mac has reported that Apple is indeed planning to bring Retina displays to the MacBook Air alongside the next-generation MacBook Pros and iMac family. Retina display will be the most significant change for the next-generation MacBook Airs line.
Apple’s new MacBook Air will not see major changes across the entire computer like the next-generation MacBook Pro, but this update will truly be all about the Retina Display. [...]
Joanna Stern from ABC News claims that not only the MacBook Pro family but also the iMac line is set to gain ultra high-resolution "Retina" displays.
The laptop will see the introduction of the “Mac Retina Display,” which is said to have a very high resolution. ABC News has similarly heard from its own sources that both the next MacBook Pro and the iMac would be getting very, very high-resolution displays. Apple refreshed its new iPad with a Retina Display in March.
It seems natural that Apple wants to move all its displays to the retina standard. But, it’s unclear, how Apple will implement the increased resolution given that most Macs already approach Retina resolution at typical viewing distances.
Apple's much-rumored 15-inch MacBook Pro will reportedly receive a new design that will be considerably thinner than the existing MacBook Pro due to the removal of the optical drive.
While many have speculated that the new 15-inch MacBook Pro will pickup the design from the late-2010/mid-2011 MacBook Air, sources familiar with the prototype units say that this is untrue. Instead, the new 15-inch MacBook Pro is described as being an ultra-thin version of the current MacBook Pro. Basically, the prototype design is a thinner, yet more robust, version of the late-2008 design. It has no tapering like the MacBook Airs.
iMore reports that Apple indeed plans to launch its 7-inch iPad in October. The device will be priced in the $200-$250 range
According to our source, which has proven reliable in the past, the reason for such aggressive pricing is to do to the tablet market what Apple did to the MP3 market in 2004 with the expansion of the iPod product line -- leave absolutely no space for competitors.
