MacMost Now 684: A Close Look At the New iPad’s Retina Display

The new iPad has a retina display that doubles the numbers of horizontal and vertical pixels, giving you four times the total number of pixels on the screen. The result is a much better display for text, graphics and photos. Learn more about the retina display and see comparisons between the iPad 2 and the new iPad.

    Thanks. It was great to see the actual side by side comparisons.

    Hi Gary,
    I looked at the new iPad and the iPad 2 at my local Apple store yesterday and frankly could see little difference in the display of the stock photos in iPhoto and text in IBooks unless I zoomed in to a very close up display. I wonder if the difference in resolution between the models will be all that noticeable in everyday use.

    I bought a new iPad after having a 1 and a 2 and I am amazed at the clarity of the text in the books I read. I am reading "Game of Thrones: the Story Continues" at the moment. It is a seriously long event. I like to read of a night time before going to sleep. I am sure that my eyes are not as tired now with the new iPad as they were with my other iPads.
