Any news of a retina monitor?
First post, but a worthy one as I don't think this has been brought up.
There's a lot of hype surrounding the introduction of the retina display to the MacBook in this year's refresh, but I haven't seen any indication that Apple are going to introduce it to their Thunderbolt displays.
I bought a Mac mini a month ago as I got a decent price and was getting impatient about waiting for a refresh when upgrading my ageing MacBook to a desktop setup. I'm using it with an old-ish 22" LG monitor as I really couldn't justify the outlay for a Thunderbolt display with the same pixel density and extra screen which I just don't need.
I was pretty happy with using this monitor until I got one of those nice new iPads (I'm overhauling my set-up this year, probably to be capped off with the iPhone 5) and now the LG seems incredibly blocky by comparison. I sit pretty close.
Now, if Apple do release a retina Thunderbolt monitor do you think they might come out with a 22" version? It seems to make sense that they would bring retina to the whole line-up (including iMacs) as the distance between eyes and monitor is still short enough with desktops to make out pixels.
I understand the Mac mini's a bit of an unconventional choice but I understand a lot of MacBook-as-desktop users make use of external monitors, and surely you wouldn't want to do that with the new line-up at the cost of clarity... right?
I'm worried that I might regret my decision to jump the gun...
