Retina Display is a brand name used by Apple for liquid crystal displays. According to Apple, the pixel density is so high that the human eye is unable to notice pixelation at a typical viewing distance. You can certainly notice the difference between Apples’s previous generation laptops and the new retina display laptops. The aspect makes it harder to go back once you’ve witnesses the stunning picture quality. The same goes for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch.
Because of this new display, regular websites that aren’t optimized look terrible. Now the pressure is on PC manufacturers to compete with Apple. I’m sure in 2013 we will witness Dell, HP, and Asus release laptops that match or leap Apple in this category. If you’re a website owner or are planning to start a new website very soon, it would be wise to have a responsive website that’s also retina ready. By future proofing your site, you will be able to provide a pleasant experience for every visitor. Below you will find 40 beautiful websites that are retina ready. Enjoy!
