Love it when technology moves forward and leaves some people blown out of the water. I am sure the other manufacturers will soon follow.

It’s great how they managed to get that marvelous screen, and reduce the glare as well. Hope they do it quickly for all other devices and desktop computers.

The battery segment is something that needs improvement – too big, too little time. Anyone knows if Apple has bought any company to reinvent the battery, or if there’s anyone doing significant work in this field? If we’d get past this, the laptops could get so much thinner!

you know what is nice?

we already have technology to power devices with no batteries, and is 100 years old stuff.

I don’t really see the big deal over “retina”... I have to really look super close and concentrate to see any kind of difference between retina and normal.

Use iPhone with retina display for a bit and then look at the normal screen and you will see what is the big deal :)


Haha, I love Apple pricing policy, in my country price range for new MBP is from 2939 USD to even 5000 USD ! Anyway, I’m getting soon Thinkpad T530 with FullHD IPS display (with a 95 percent color gamut) with i7 and SSD for less than 2000 USD , and it’s more than enought for me. Sorry Apple, you had a chance ;)

Yeah but you want get OS X :) This is the only reason I have made a switch. I am w8ing for the 13’’ Retina then I will buy it for sure.


Mam …even if Apple will sell you ice, someone will get exited …..

Am I the only one who seas the breakthrough here? This is a huge step forward…

One more thing about the price… one year ago I have bought the top 13’’ configuration with 256GB SSD drive for 2000$ so please don’t tell me 2200$ for 15’’ with Retina is a big deal. It is in Poland because the same 15’’ with retina costs 3000-4000$ :) Thats why the only solution is to import from US :P

All I know who ever come with a batteries solution will be the richest man/woman in the world.

I am doing a job now that required me to travel 2 times a week in train/bus about 5 hours, so i am working on the way, but when i will run out of battery has a mystic impact on me, i always get screw on one point during the day of traveling.

I find a solution, i just take a flight… 40 minutes and i don’t need to worry about that crap battery :P

Anyway, I’m wondering something about Retina and image size. Since the resolution is super high in a smallish form factor, won’t everything look super small on it? Like a 960px site would look very narrow on this screen. And any image in general will look way smaller on it vs a regular screen with fatter pixels. Am I right, or don’t I understand the retina technology?
I wonder the same, but “normal” websites on iPad3 look rather “normal”, so I don’t really get it ;)

I haven’t done much research on designing for retina display and the websites on the new ipad looks fine but if you see native apps on a new ipad then you will see that an app not optimized for retina display looks very small and you get 1x and 2x switcher.

So I guess retina display only effects native iOS apps and same will happen to mac os apps not optimized for retina display.

The keyword for future mobile batteries is ‘kinetic’. Time will say.

Yeah thats true and I think this is why there is only one model they want to introduce retina slowly so the app developers could handle the switch.
