  1. Those looking for more evidence that Apple is planning to update their Mac notebooks need to look no further than the Mac App Store. Astute users have noticed that a...

    Good marketing name, nothing more. They've been pushing the "awesomeness" of the retina display in the iPad commercials for over two years now. In fact, other than its design, that's the only thing they have been pushing, so I'm not particularly surprised that people who like macs can only talk about how rich and detailed the display it. What I am surprised at is that we keep talking about it. As if resolution is the more important indice of a good display...

    No one said it was. You missed the point of the article. Pity.

    -From the first page you see at www.apple.com "Resolutionary: the New iPad"

    -Product page, literally the first description the customer gets iPad: "Retina display. See everything like never before. Four times more pixels than iPad 2"

    -Product page, first paragraph with any detail whatsoever: "Everything you do with iPad, you do through its large, beautiful display. And when the display is better, the entire iPad experience is better. The Retina display on the new iPad features a 2048-by-1536 resolution..."

    -Anandtech's article on the announcement for the iPad three read in banner headline: "Apple Announces the New iPad with 2048 x 1536 'Retina Display' "
    (http://www.anandtech.com/show/5644/apple-announces-the-new-ipad-with-2048-x-1536-retina-display)

    If primary beats recency (and it does, in case you aren't getting the point yet), then you missed the point of EVERYTHING. Boom. roasted. Better grab your backpack from the closet, because you just got taken to school.
     
  5. I don't know why some people even comment on stuff with such *****ic response. Resolution is the only thing that maters on a display or in photography or I don't know in any kind of video centric on-taking. I can't wait when the retina display matures and we see the full 5100x3200 photo that we take or the 7100 by 5000 with the new d800. Oh if you say that is not the exact number I slap you silly for I approximate the number and it is close enough. Oh and the vibrance of color for the iPad is just stunning you can show the photo to clients right away from eye-fi to iPad. Apple is awesome. And in the past pc users always used that comment that apple is always behind. How come all of you are sitting in the corner now and shutting up. I want to see your comment on how the tablets are way ahead of iPad with their retina displays.

    I just lost any belief I had in your post when you said resolution is the only thing that matters in photography. thats a really, really, stupid thing to say.

    Ooooh boy... Resolution is the only thing important in monitors in photography? That's the single dumbest statement I've read in a while. While I don't mind seeing the pictures I take full size on my monitor, I would gladly trade this for color accuracy, viewing angles and palette coverage.
     
  8. Well, all driod world does is tout how there processors are faster and are now up to 4 cores.

    No matter that the overall andriod OS is slower so it responds slower even with a faster processor.

    At least Apple delivers stunning visual quality vs hype of processor speed!
