    Default Rumor: Apple's iMac Lineup to receive Retina Display Upgrade


    In addition to the MacBook Pro lineup, Apple’s next-gen iMac desktops are also rumored to be receiving a new high-resolution Retina display.

    The news following earlier reports that Apple would be unveiling thinner Retina display-equipped MacBook Pros beginning during the Worldwide Developers Conference in June. Joanna Stern of ABC News confirmed the details and included the iMac in the mix. According to her, the iMac will get a new “very, very high resolution” display. The details come in on the heels of benchmark tests that appeared online for a new iMac model, identified as “13,2.” The tested desktop featured a quad-core i7 chip at a clock speed of 3.40 gigahertz running OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, and earned a score of 12,183.

    There have been several speculations that Apple’s 2012 iMac lineup will feature anti-reflective glass displays. It was also said that the new iMacs will be noticeably thinner than the current all-in-one desktop models offered by Apple. The latest rumor of high-res iMacs suggests that Apple plans to quickly upgrade much of its Mac lineup to new Retina displays, catching up with the high pixel density screens currently found on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.

    It was being said that Apple was eyeing a June launch for new iMacs featuring Intel’s latest-generation Ivy Bridge processors. Furthermore, the iMac lineup was last updated in May of 2011, when Apple added high-definition FaceTime cameras as well as high-speed Thunderbolt ports. The current iMacs are powered by Intel’s Sandy Bridge processors and AMD Radeon HD graphics and many consumers have been holding out to upgrade in order to get the latest technology for the same price.

    Hopefully the whole MacBook line and iMacs will be retina display. I need a new computer and this is what I was holding off on.

    Retina is so pretty! I love it! Good decision if Apple decides adding it to all of the new iDevices!

    I'd still prefer a 30" or 32" model over retina. Oh well, i'll take either.

    I doubt it. Think about the ridiculous load that would put on the current graphics cards that are out there. They would need something as powerful as the quad-core i7 just for displaying all those pixels.

    I really hope this will force higher resolution display from other makers. The industry needs it badly!

    Considering "retina display" is a made up term by Apple, they can call whatever display they want and call it "retina".

    Go watch the iPhone 4 announcement when Steve explains what "retina display" is.

    Since my iMac is much further away from my face than my iPhone is, then the iMac won't need 326ppi to look like "retina display" to us.
