Although Macbook Air’s screen size is about 13 inches, the resolution is about 1440×900 pixels. Which is the same resolution as the Macbook Pro 15 inches has. At least, the standard model… you can always upgrade it to HD and you’ll get a gorgeous resolution of 1680×1020.
So far so good. But… Apple seems to be planning a 15 inches version of the Air. What would it mean??. Well… if they include a Retina display, it could mean the end of the Pro lineup. The new iPad has a 9.7 inches screen, and its resolution is of 2048x1536px. So… if my math doesn’t fail, a 13 inches retina display could have a resolution as high as 2744x2058px…. while a 15 inches retina display could be 3167x2376px.
Yeah, that’s basic math. But imagine what would it look like… a 15 inches screen with that resolution!. These days, the only problem of the Airs is… the 4gb ram limit!. HD space can be also a big deal. But you can easily solve that with an external storage.
So… what will happen?. We’ll probably hear more about this in the next few months… i’ll keep you posted!.
