With Apple’s entire family of iOS devices now kitted out with high-resolution Retina displays, it’s time for the Cupertino company’s Macs to get the same treatment. We’ve speculated about Retina display MacBook Pros for some time, but there’s been little mention of a high-resolution display for the iMac.

But fear not. Those of you with a love for Apple’s all-in-one won’t get left behind when the Retina display upgrades begin their rollout.

According to sources for ABC News, the iMac will get a “very, very high resolution” Retina display upgrade alongside the release of Apple’s next-generation MacBook Pros, which are expected to make their debut at WWDC in early June. The machines will also be treated to Intel’s latest Ivy Bridge processors, and graphics chips from NVIDIA rather than AMD.

ABC’s sources didn’t mention what the desktop may look like, but according to recent reports, it will sport a whole new look that is both thinner and lighter that its predecessors, with anti-reflective glass displays from a company called G-Tech.

    Yeah. They will.

    No one on Earth makes 27″ 5120×2880 display. The iMacs cannot get retina displays this upgrade time. It’s just not possible.

    Our retinas will literally melt!

    I don’t even see the need for such a high resolution to begin with. But I would suspect this simply isn’t going to happen on a desktop. Too many apps out there would be virtually unusable due to the tiny GUI size unless they port it to the new resolution.

    I don’t see Microsoft and Adobe recoding their apps to accommodate – at least not this year.

    That’s what full-screen apps are for.

    Well, the bigger the display, the further back you’re supposed to sit. 217ppi at 27″ is overkill. I’m pretty sure the iMac already almost reaches that retina number.
