Apple's 2012 upgrades for its Macbook Pro notebook series could include a retina display.
Industry sources told Digitimes that Apple's future MacBooks will feature display resolutions of up to 2880 x 1800 pixels on the high-end. Mainstream and entry-level models will keep the 1680 x 1050 and 1280 x 800 resolutions. The sources indicated that the new notebooks will arrive in the second quarter of the year.
Asus and Acer will push the resolution of their ultrabooks, Digitimes said. High-end ultrabooks will be 1920x1080 pixel screens, up from 1366x768 in the current generation.
