Reports have given indications that the upcoming MacBook Pro 2012 of Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) may come with a high-resolution display. The device will reportedly also feature a design similar to that of the MacBook Air. The high-resolution display on the MacBook Pro 2012 will reportedly be called retina in order to convince consumers that the display of the new laptop of the company will offer a better user experience.

Aside from the MacBook Pro 2012, Apple is also expected to release new models of its computer that will feature high-definition display screens. The Mac OS X Mountain Lion is also expected to be released by the company before the end of the year although some reports have pointed to its release during the upcoming WWDC in June.
The resolution of the app icons on the MacBook Pro 2012 is also expected to be enhanced by the company from 512 x 512 pixels to 1024 x 1024 pixels. The design will also be enhanced to highlight the high density resolution of the future display of the product.
Earlier reports have also revealed that the company will introduce a new MacBook Air that will be priced at around $799. The device will reportedly be released by the third quarter of the year as indicated by sources within the supply chain of the company.
