While the prevailing MacBook models have displays with resolutions ranging from 1680 by 1050 to 1280 by 800, the ultra-high resolution for the new MacBook Pro will further differentiate Apple’s products from other brands, commented the sources.

With next generation Intel’s Ivy Bridge processors that will support up to 4096 x 4096 resolution natively, Mac OS X Lion’s HiDPI display mode with 3200 x 2000 wallpapers and 1024 x 1024 resolution icons, and ultra high resolution displays announced by LG and Sharp for laptops, Apple has everything in place for bring ultra high resolution goodies to their MacBook Pro Lineup.

Yes, at 2880 x 1800 pixels the display won’t have Retina display like pixel density found on the iPhone. However, at a distance of more that 20-inch (distance between face and laptop screen), the increase from about 110 DPI (Dots per inch) on current MacBook Pros to 220 DPI will be really awesome.
