Re: When will we see a Retina iMac?

You are right. On the other hand when I saw the iPad mini it looked horrible compared to the Retina iPad so what happens to your argument? With the iMac there are no power constraints (as opposed to the laptop), but the sheer size of that panel makes it just a $ 5000 panel today. I guess Apple is waiting for the price to come down.

I don't think we'll see 300PPI+ desktop displays... I just don't think its necessary.

Sure, someday we'll see higher resolution, but it wont be a dramatic jump like we saw to the 300PPI+ phone/tablet displays.

Yeah who needs more than 640K right? Apple is gonna ship that puppy the minute they can say "and for an extra $ 600...one more thing" and we will all swoon like Aluminum eaters to the credit card(s).

There comes a point where the eye can no longer discern individual pixels. At that point you have a valid "who needs it" moment. While new apps and processes will require more and more memory, the eye will not see any better. But yeah, I'll throttle that CC in a second if they rolled one out.
