The retina display on Apple's (AAPL) next-gen, $2199, MacBook Pro is winning rave reviews. "It’s almost too good, if that’s even possible," says BGR's Jonathan S. Geller after trying it out. AnandTech praises the display's image quality and contrast after putting it through some tests, albeit while noting some games will need to be optimized for it. Canaccord is lifting its estimates for Apple on account of its Mac refresh.

    Just reporting a typo:
    The link in "AnandTech praises the display's image quality and contrast after putting it through some tests"


    apparently points to a The Verge article entitled:


    Nokia confirms PureView is coming to future Lumia Windows Phones


    By Tom Warrenon June 12, 2012 09:36 am


    Nokia's PureView technology, first revealed in the company's Symbian 808 PureView handset, will arrive on future Lumia Windows Phones. The company previously hinted that other platforms would benefit from its 41-megapixel camera sensor, but Nokia's Chris Webber says "you can expect we'll be bringing PureView technologies to the Windows Phone platform in future Lumia devices."


    What does this have to do with the Retina Display on the new MBP?

    Too bad Jonathan Geller and BGR are a joke. They might as well be named Boy Apple Report. :-) If Apple made a brick with their logo on it, Geller would say its the best thing since sliced bread.

    Just a language quibble. I wish people would learn to use words like "albeit" and "comprise" before using them.


    In an attempt to flaunt their superior vocabulary, people who misuse these words accomplish the opposite.

    Go to the Apple store and try one. Apple's machines, unlike Windows Machines, are not commoditized.

    These machines are used by graphic artists; not everyone just uses a computer for email and watching their stocks.

    Niche product at best and won't sell in any numbers. AAPL is all about iPhone revenue.

    Not just Canacord quite reputable not "fan boys".Apple also is #1 (GS) conviction buy target $850.The consensus share price target from 39 analysts tracked is US $737.36 on ( EvenTide is #1 independent Apple analyst that posts on SA usually dead on.
    Mac Pro retina refresh is great many graphic artists gamers will buy but iPhone 5 sales of 50 million predicted by Munster of Piper(AAPL target $910) this fall will drive revenue along with iPads WAY more than Macs. We are backing up the Apple truck on dips and taking a byte.Bought some @ $570 2 days ago.
