Apple unveiled the new Macbook Pro featuring an impressive IPS panel with 2880x1440 pixel resolution <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1339433389><b>in June</b></a>. Various reports now suggest that both LG and Samsung are providing the panels. It is an IPS panel structure similar to that used in iPhone and iPad.<br /><br /><h3>IPS panel in Retina Macbook Pro</h3>Apple introduced their first “Retina” display in the iPhone 4 and later in the iPad 3. That move pushed to mobile industry in a new direction and many users discovered how important display quality is for the product experience.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/macbookretina-2l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/macbookretina-2.jpg" alt="The new Macbooks with Retina displays" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>The retina display inside the Retina Macbook Pro is made by LG and Samsung</i></p><br />With the launch of the first Macbook with a high-pixel-density LCD panel, we hope that Apple can do the same for the laptop and monitor industry that has been evolving at a very slow pace in the recent years. The 15.4 inch Macbook Pro was announced with a 2880x1440-pixel LCD panel but the supplier was unknown at launch.<br /><br />Early dismantling reports confirmed that LG supplied the panel inside. The 15.4-inch panel that comes from LG.Display is called LP154WT1 and is an AH-IPS panel. Later reports have confirmed that Samsung is in the mix as well with a panel called LSN154YL01001. Samsung does not produce IPS panels but produces a variant called <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/focus.php?subaction=showfull&id=1291980086><b>PLS</b></a>. With this in mind, we should expect to see similar LCD panels in other manufacturers’ products soon, depending on how much capacity Apple takes up.<br /><br />Back in the days we could simply hit up the supplier’s website and get full information on the panel but panels shipped to Apple are not included on Samsung and LG.Display’s websites. Still, no <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1322134609><b>Sharp panels</b></A> inside and we continue to wonder what <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1332920235><b>Foxconn’s large investment in Sharp</b></a> has to do with Apple.<br /><br />Rumors suggest that Apple plans to launch a smaller 13.3-inch Retina Macbook Pro later this year and maybe even a Retina iMac.
