The Retina display, currently available on the latest versions of the iPad tablet and iPhone smartphone, as well as the recently launched MacBook Pro 15-inch edition, has impressed analysts and consumers alike with its high-definition display and stunning sharpness. Because the Retina displays pixel density is so high, the human eye is unable to distinguish individual pixels, which means text in books, Web pages and email is crisp at any size, and photos and other visual media appear incredibly crisp.
