Snippet: Pixel Perfect ☇

Shared on August 14, 2012

I thought I’d share a post by John Gruber over at Daring Fireball (celebrating its tenth birthday yesterday), where he explains why the MacBook Pro with Retina Display isn’t just some gimmick. I think the same thing applies, but to a lesser extent, to the third-generation iPad versus the iPad 2. My display and print history followed Gruber’s, so his sentiments hit home:

I can only tell you how profound the difference is. I can’t show you. Because if I included example graphics and you viewed them on a non-retina Mac display, your display wouldn’t be capable of rendering what I see. And if you’re using a MacBook Pro With Retina Display yourself, you already know what I mean.

Snippets are posts that share a linked item with a bit of commentary.
