“Last week’s WWDC keynote saw the launch of iOS 6, as well as a rejig of Apple’s entire Mac line – including a brand new MacBook Pro with a thinner body, souped up specs and a Retina display,” Ben Sillis reports for Electricpig.
“I’ve been testing it out for the last week and – quelle surprise – it’s amazing,” Sillis reports. “The thing is, it’s so good it’s making the internet itself look bad.”
Sillis reports, “I spent a few days working on the new MacBook Pro, then tried to go back to my 2009 15-inch MacBook Pro. It’s hard. It looks grainy. It offends me now. Which is ridiculous, but there you are.”
“Using Apple’s first party apps rejigged for the Retina Display is a wonderful experience. Writing on it in a full screen app is glorious, like typing onto a sheet of paper in a typewriter, only with the option to press delete. Basically, almost anything that doesn’t involve images looks amazing. But that’s a big problem for browsing,” Sillis reports. “Head over to any website outside of Apple.com, and you’ll quickly see what I mean. What looks like a crisp, sharp homepage logo on any well-designed site becomes a blurry mess.”
