We travel around the internet to find the best wallpapers for your new laptop.

Apple’s new MacBook Pro features a stunning 2880×1800 Retina display that makes any other screen look like pixelated junk. Because the next-gen 2012 MacBook Pro packs so many pixels in an insane resolution on a 15-inch display, it can be difficult to find great wallpapers that are optimized correctly. Luckily, we’ve collected the best resources on the internet to help you find the most beautiful wallpapers possible.

The very best wallpaper resource on the internet right now is a site called InterfaceLIFT. There’s already a Retina MacBook Pro thread with over 200 2880×1800 wallpapers, and you can download each individually for free or pay $2 to download the whole collection at once. Here are a few of our favorites (again, there are way more to choose from):
