According to the rumors, the iPad 3 is expected to feature a Retina display with a whopping resolution of 2048×1536 packed into a presumably 9.7” display. Without doubt if those rumors are to come true, it would be one heck of a display, but according to new rumors, manufacturers Acer and ASUS are attempting to create high density displays of their own in an effort to head off the rumored iPad 3 Retina display.
Digitimes is reporting that both AU Optronics and Chi Mei Innolux are currently working on 1920×1280 LCDs that would be part of Acer and ASUS’s new ultrabooks as early as January or February of 2012. While displays of that resolution are common in larger laptops, ultrabooks such as Apple’s MacBook Air and ASUS’s offering have only managed to hit 1440×900 and 1600×900 on their 13” models respectively.
Much like how we would love to see a 2048×1536 resolution packed into a 9.7” display, we wouldn’t exactly say no to a 13” ultrabook that came with a 1920×1280 1080p display either. With a slew of ultrabooks expected to make its debut at CES 2012, hopefully these high density display ultrabooks will be making an appearance as well.
