Only the "Quardo 4000 for Mac" could do 10-bit color and that can only be installed in Mac Pro.
Too expensive, too used to Windows.
Awesome display though.
I dunno there were so many iFans and Apple Fanboys here!
No offence btarunr, but it would be nice to see a bit more effort put into your news articles. It is obvious that you just do a simple cut and paste - which is usually fine, and I do appreciate that you get hold of news incredibly quickly, but not when important pieces of information like the resolution of the screen are left out.
Maybe a more thorough proofread? I dunno, I'm not a journalist, just trying to give some constructive criticism.
Sorry if I wasted anyone's time.
They don't have games which will revel how crappy their hardware is.
Find me any other laptop that comes close to Apple's new MBP specs & form factor for ANY price.
220ppi is enough for a retina display. This is false marketing.
Well first of all I don't think it can technically be "false" marketing because "retina display" is just a nebulous term that Apple uses synonymously with "high pixel density." Second of all it's not just about ppi, it's about ppi relative to the distance of the viewer. In this case 220 ppi on a 15" display with a viewing distance of "arm's length" is proportional to what they've coined as "retina displays" on their other devices.
Okay. This thing might well be the first Mac I'll shell money for. I'm looking for a laptop upgrade, and since my laptop runs linux anyway, I don't need windows on it. Also, since that upgrade is free via a research grant, I don't care how overpriced Macs are (which is my typical objection)...
Edit: Now I just need to wait for the local supplier to get his act together...
To bad? To good! Have you ever seen how Windows 7 is scaling to that resolution??? hahaha. Not to mention Java/Flash/Active X .... It would have been a total disaster!
It can't play crysis.
Apple, sell me a 2880x1800 desktop display with DVI or mini-display port (not just thunderbolt) in somewhere between 20" and 24" format and you've got THREE pre-sales waiting right here. I'll upgrade ALL MY MACHINES
So I opened apple.com to download the new iTunes then I saw this HOLY CRAP 2880x1800 JESUS CHRIST IT ACTUALLY HAPPENED!
This is the first mac that I've even slightly liked, nice resolution and finally they made it look as though macs aren't for retards. However still let down by the lack of a decent operating system and how would I install windows 7 with no optical drive (usb stick of course but still crap)? Oh and the price never forget that, and the specs apart from the screen are shit for the price.
I mean that graphics card is utter shit Ive found a £450 laptop with a better gfx card and a quad core cpu in it.
All of you Apple haters need to visit an Apple store and use a 27" iMac. The display and resolution is simply beautiful. After experiencing that, just imagine how nice the 2880x1800 display is going to look on the 15.4" screen....amazing stuff.
OS plays big roles on how beautiful it is.
My 27" dell U2711 @ 2560x1440 looks beaufiful... i can imagine how this looks. I do wonder at what point do the pixels get so small that we can no longer tell a difference in quality.
That's the point of "retina" Not being able to see the pixels at the used distance.
And my point was, i dont know if i could see the pixels on a 1920x1080 15" screen either. Not sure because i dont think i have seen one.
or you can reference
You will see 1080p(15.4in lcd) pixels until you get about 24 inches away.
Macbook pro is for about ~15in and beyond.
A typical mac user response no justification as they know (or should know) they are wrong.
I came in here to watch all the hate...
Must be something wrong with the internet today. Can't find much.
This will make so many professionals happy.
Gamers need not put their names in the waiting list.
