Retina Display Coming to Macs?

With WWDC 2012 less than a month away, the Apple rumor mill is in full swing. Today, Bloomberg has confirmed a report from earlier today that Apple is preparing to release thinner MacBook Pro models with Retina displays. The new MacBook Pros will reportedly also includes ports for the MagSafe power connector, two USB ports, and audio in/out jacks along the left side, with a battery level indicator also included along the same side. The right side is said to offer a pair of Thunderbolt ports, another USB port, an SD card slot, and a Kensington lock slot.

Apple’s MacBook Pro lineup was last updated in October of 2011, and is due for an update anytime. The MacBook Pro hasn’t had a significant redesign since 2008 either.

In addition, ABC News reports that not only the MacBook Pro family but also the iMac line is set to gain ultra high-resolution “Retina” displays.

As incredible as this sounds, it should be pointed out that nothing is confirmed until Apple announces it officially.
