Apple Apple held its keynote speech just now, kicking off its developer conference. The company announced minor refreshes for its laptop line, introduced a stunning new laptop with a Retina display, and gave a sneak peek of iOS 6, which will launch in the Fall.

No new MacBook Pro for me this year

I am currently using a MBP 17" that is now nearly one and a half years old and was hoping for a hardware refresh.
Since I am using the MBP to write code and other textual stuff I am interested in getting as much (readable) text as possible on the screen.
Currently with 1920x1200 pixels that works well. The retina display uses its pixel to display text smooth but not to display more textual information on the screen. I will give the display a try at 1920x1200 pixel resolution that is still supported as soon as a demo machine is available at my apple dealer, but I doubt that it will work out at this screen size plus the negative effect of dithering from 2880x1800 pixels down to 1920x1200 pixels.
So for me this round of hardware updates is bad news, as the end of the Xserve and the end of OS X Server (as the quite usable product before OS X 10.7) was.
