Rumors regarding Apple’s upcoming MacBook and iMac models are abound around the web. While MacBook Pro models are rumored to be featuring an Ivy Bridge processor, Nvidia graphics and Retina display, we are left wondering which of these, if any, will also be a part of the iMac machines. Now, ABC News has claimed that it has been told by certain sources that iMac may also be getting a Retina display.
A Retina display on a 27-inch screen can be a truly mesmerizing experience. However, it may also require a lot of additional power to go with it which can juice up the heavy-duty display. So will Apple really go forward with it?
So far, the rumors seem to be pointing towards this. Another significant feature that Apple may add to iMac is that of making the screen anti-glare. This feature is not present in the current models of iMac.
Also, with Retina display coming on iMac, Apple will require a more powerful graphics chip to go into the machine which can keep up with the ultra-high resolution graphics of a Retina display. So in short, if Apple does decide to use Retina display in an iMac, it will have to be coupled with a number of other hardware changes. The question is, will Apple really take such a major step on the iMac front?
