Consider the Retina Display for Mac

Tim Ricchuiti has written an informative analysis of how Apple might bring the Retina Display to Macs.
Interest in the topic has stemmed from Apple’s inclusion of a 3200×2000 pixel wallpaper image in Mac OS X Lion. After examining the various options, Ricchuiti published the chart below detailing what he estimates could be the Retina Display resolutions for different Mac devices.
