Apple It's one of those days again: Apple held a product announcement today, announcing several new products. The most important of which was rumoured about for a long time now: a smaller iPad. It's called the iPad mini, and has the potential to become the best-selling iPad - and thus, the best selling tablet.

You probably already knew this, but technically those 27in screens are "retina" already, especially if they have the 27in iMac resolution. It's all determined by where your head is in relation to a screen and its size, not just the resolution. In simple terms - if you can't see the pixels from your normal position, its retina.

I also think it has to do with performance and diminishing returns. You can have a screen that is really close to retina, so you don't really see a need to spend more to bump it over the line into offical retina.
