[Jeremy Garchow] "A retina display, doubles the amount of pixels, therefore effectively increases resolution, but does this in the same amount of screen real estate?"

That has been how they've managed it on the iPhone and iPad. It is doubling the pixels on both the X and Y axes, so it is really a quadrupling of pixels. The way Apple defines "Retina Display" they need to be at a fine enough resolution that the human eye cannot discern individual pixels at typical viewing distances. This means inches for iPhones and feet for iMacs.

I fear the early going with Retina Macs will yield a lot of ugly-looking legacy software and web content. You'll have the crisp OS X Retina HiDPI UI elements juxtaposed against suddenly muddy 72dpi everything else. Might be ugly in practice.

Best,
Andy
