Retina MacBook Versus Regular MacBook

Can the average human tell the difference between the Retina MacBook and the regular MacBook?

The new MacBook Pro is here, and by far the most compelling feature is its pixel-rich retina display. The new MacBook packs more than 5 million pixels into a 15-inch, 2,880 x 1,800 screen.

The folks at Mashable.com compared the two.  It was hard to convey the difference between the two displays via normal photos, so they went for the extreme close-up by taking pictures of key icons and details with a magnifying glass.

The results are palpable. After firing up Safari and checking out NASA’s Flickr feed on both machines (which has tons of high-resolution pictures), a crowd of Mashable staff was soon oohing and ahhing at how much more detail, color and contrast was visible on the Retina Pro. Most icons and text looked sharper, too.
