    Wizard, I have quiet side bet or hope that Apple uses it's 100 Billion to give them a head start for retina Macs this year. Otherwise what is the cash pile for?



    The implications of such a head start are massive to continue the Mac growth and create a bigger impact/leverage versus the PC market and an incentive for a swelling user base to upgrade.



    If they can do it for the iPad why not the Mac with sales of about 5 million per quarter.



    It would be a stunning coupe de grace.

    I'm not sure IvyBridge will have the beef required to drive a Retina screen well in the AIRs. For that reason I could see the MBP going Retina first. That and the fact that AIR suitable processor won't hit until July.

    I find it ironic that an iPad has a retina display but a Mac doesn't. eg the Air. For over twice the entry price of the iPad...



    I can type, surf, create, paint (as fast as I can in Photoshop with Procreate on the iPad. Awesome little painting app...), play 3D games at retina screen density...email...watch video...etc. etc.



    Strange world we live in.

    Why?



    It's hard to make screens like that. I don't find it ironic that my seven year old flip phone has OLED screens and my Mac doesn't. The screens are just 1" and 1.5". My Cinema Display is 27". I wouldn't want to pay for that just yet.

    Why? The hardware doesn't exist yet. It can't come out any earlier than it exists, and you (meaning people) would whine about how bad the stop-gap solution would be.

    It's following a normal progression. If you don't like it, don't buy one. With the way content is presently set up, this would be a feature, not a requirement. Outside of these boards, I don't think many people follow such things.
