"If you frequent our forums or other PC enthusiast-focused corners of the web, you may have heard the whispers about the new breed of monitors being sold in Korea under various brand names for astonishingly low prices. They sound almost too good to be true: expansive 27" displays at the formidable resolution of 2560x1440 selling for peanuts, between $300 and $400, well under half the price of a similar display from the likes of Dell." via The Tech Report

What Would You Do with a 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro?

Image via Time Techland

"The 13-inch non-Retina MacBook Pro has a screen that employs 1,280 x 800 as its native resolution. That’s workable for everyday stuff, but much too small if you’re working in apps like Logic Pro or Photoshop (or frankly even GarageBand). By contrast, the 13-inch MacBook Air employs a 1,440 x 900 native screen. Why not make that the default resolution on a 13-inch Retina Pro?" via Time Techland

"Given the fact that Apple can get enough Retina-class screens for its iPhone and iPad devices, it is hard to imagine that the company could not obtain enough 15" screens for its latest MacBook Pro. Still, given the fact that the new MBP adopts completely new system architecture with SSD storage, new type of display and new type of unibody case, manufacturing problems are likely to occur to the laptop." via Xbit Laboratories

"The biggest draw--and regrettably, the biggest disappointment--of the Timeline Ultra M5 is its 15.6-inch screen. ...Once you gt past its low resolution, the screen looks pretty good.
