Laptop display pixel counts to quadruple in 2012

2880 x 1800 panel on your MacBook, anyone?

3 Big data security analytics techniques

Buy one of Apple's next MacBook Pro notebooks and you'll get yourself a - glossy, no doubt - 2880 x 1800 resolution display.

So say the inevitably anonymous Asia moles, who add that next year's fresh crop of Ultrabooks - likely to be demo'd at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January but not go on sale until Q2 when Intel's Ivy Bridge platform arrives - will sport 1920 x 1080 displays, DigiTimes notes.

Current MacBook screen resolutions max out at 1680 x 1050 on the 15in model - though 1440 x 900 is the standard size - and 1920 x 1200 on the 17-incher. Both have non-glossy alternatives, BTW.

Given the claimed resolution jump is double - in each dimension - that of the current 15-incher, it seems likely the sources are referring to that model rather than the larger machine.

Incidentally, there's been talk of late of a 15in MacBook Air, and it's possible that Apple will use the 2880 x 1800 to stamp this model as a premium offering.

Ultrabooks currently offer 1280 x 800 or 1366 x 768 screens. ®
