Apple planning ultra-high-resolution displays for MacBook Pro?

A new MacBook Pro might be on its way to a very High resolution of about 2880x1800pixels

After conquering the tablet and Smartphone market, Apple now plans to reach new milestones in the Netbook market. According to a recent report by Digitimes Apple is currently planning to launch a new MacBook Pro. This notebook might be released in the second quarter of 2012.

The new MacBook Pro would come with a 2880x1800 pixel ultra-high resolution display, which has a significant difference from what it currently offers. Currently the 17inch MacBook Pro features a resolution of 1920x1200 pixel backlit display.

The Company has a top 27inch monitor also known as Thunderbolt Display which currently offers 2560x1440 pixel screens. As we can see the new MacBook Pro to be having a higher resolution display it will be interesting to see if this monitor will exceed its resolution further.

Last year Apple unveiled the iPhone 4’s Retina Display. They used the same technology on iPhone 4S and delivers greater pixel density than other products on the store. Other vendors are also trying to match the Retina Display with high quality HD displays.

The same might also be the case with the notebook market after apple releases this high resolution MacBook Pro according to Digitimes. In the meantime Asus and Acer are already planning to boost resolutions in their Ultrabook lines to a 1920x1080pixel during the first half of 2012.
