iPad 3 Retina Display Visualized: More Pixels Than Most Macs

It’s all but confirmed that the upcoming iPad 3 will include a 2048×1536 Retina display, but many don’t realize just how high resolution such a display would actually be. OS X Daily‘s Paul Horowitz shares a visualization from Chris Koerner that puts things in perspective.

As it turns out, an iPad 3 with a Retina display would contain more pixels than most Macs – only the 27-inch iMac boasts a higher pixel count! Horowitz points out that this presents an interesting situation for developers, in which the Mac apps they design will features lower-resolution graphics than their iPad apps!

All I can say about that is WOW! Of course, it may not be that way for long – rumors of HiDPI “Retina” Macs  are picking up a lot of traction these days, and that would bring their screen resolution up to truly staggering pixel counts. Massive.

You can check out the full-size illustration here, but you’ll have to scroll your Mac’s display a fair bit to see the whole thing!

    Is a size comparison really valid? Unlike laptops and desktops with higher resolution, on the iPhone and iPad the objects appear the same size, albeit with much greater detail and clarity. This is brilliant, and I wish modern laptops worked similarly instead of making everything onscreen appear smaller as the resolution is increased.
