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):
NASA has some great ultra hi-res space wallpapers available that we’ve already highlighted. See our original post to download each one in its full Retina glory.
Over on Flickr, Rob Sheridan has a ton of great Retina wallpapers. Just a few of our favs:
You can usually find some gems on Dribble. Search “retina macbook pro” or something along those lines and you’ll find new stuff as it’s made available. We’ve already told you about Tim Van Damme’s great wallpaper, and there’s another beautiful collection by Marc Edwards:
deviantART is another great resource for finding hi-res wallpapers, like this pack of 8 great Retina images. The Shiny Space Wallpaper and Pluvia look particularly good on the MacBook Pro’s 2880×1800 Retina display:
Lastly, you can always download Apple’s own hi-res wallpapers that are coming in OS X Mountain Lion later this month.
