Games will look sweet on the 2012 MacBook Pro's retina display

Apple shows off Diablo 3 on super-sharp screens

Apple used video games - specifically Diablo 3 - to show off the gorgeous new 'retina' screen of its next-generation MacBook Pro revealed today.


The new MBP will feature a sweet 2880 x 1800 resolution display - four-times the number of pixels in the 2011 machines - which should prove to be plenty sharp on the portable screens.

Apple is also shoving a quad-core i7 at 2.7GHz, 16GBs RAM, 768GBs of super-fast internal flash storage and a GeForce GT 650M graphics processor into the slim metallic cases of the new laptops.

That will do gaming just nicely, as anyone who's played a supported game on the iPad 3 can imagine.

Of course, you can also use Apple's handy BootCamp tool to easily install Windows on it, so you'll have more than five games to choose from (this writer is currently playing Max Payne 3 on a 2011 MBP with everything on high at between 40-60fps depending on scene intensity - not too shabby).
