Parallels Desktop 7 and Parallels Mobile updated to support Retina Display

Parallels has announced that its Parallels Desktop 7 for Mac and Parallels Mobile software has been updated to support Apple's Retina Display on the latest MacBook Pros and the new iPad. This, of course, allows users to take advantage one of the more impressive features found on new Mac products while running a different operating system. In an effort to build some hype around this latest update, Parallels has released a video of the program running with Retina Display, which you can catch after the jump.

Retina MacBook Pro 13-inch appears in Geekbench

Retina MacBook Pro 13-inch appears in Geekbench

This afternoon several benchmarks have appeared in the greater archives of Geekbench (a system we also use for computer reviews) which show a brand new Apple MacBook Pro with 13-inch Retina display. This is different from the current model 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display we've already reviewed in that, one, of course it has a different size display, and two, that it has a significantly lower score in Geekbench than we got - a total of 7806 compared to our 15-incher's 12970. Of course it's all relative, and the important part is the fact that this device may well exist.

iPad reportedly getting hardware tweaks but no new model

iPad reportedly getting hardware tweaks but no new model

In a relatively unheard of - or unspoken of move, at least, on Apple's part, the iPad has been reported as making some changes to the current hardware that makes up the iPad 3. This 3rd generation iPad (with Retina display) will supposedly be getting a slightly thinner chassis as well as a lighter design overall. It will also be getting a larger camera lens hole, though no word has been spread quite yet on if the actual camera will be affected.

iPad Mini still missing the killer context

iPad Mini still missing the killer context

Apple's iPad Mini plans are, if the leaks are anything to go by, shaping up for a launch later in 2012, but hardware is only half the story: Apple needs a solid context with which to frame its smaller slate. One of the company's most significant strengths is not only launching new devices, but telling us why we should want them and how they're "perfect" for our lives. However, with Steve Jobs' scathing comments about "tweener" tablets still ringing strong, how will Apple sell us that this is a sensible inevitability not a blushing backtrack?

Does an iPad Mini add up, Retina style?

Does an iPad Mini add up, Retina style?

Apple's iPad Mini is the rumor that refuses to die, with several high-profile sites lending their support to speculation that a "tweener" iOS tablet is indeed in the pipeline. Such a slate would presumably instantly help Apple better compete with the Kindle Fire juggernaut, as well as the freshly announced Nexus 7, but that's assuming it can keep up its end of the bargain. Namely, does Apple - and its suppliers - have the technical capabilities to deliver a screen good enough to bear the Retina Display branding?

VLC, the popular cross-platform media player, has received an update to version 2.0.2 that adds a plethora of new features. Most importantly, it adds HiDPI support for the new Retina MacBook Pro.

Other features in VLC 2.0.2 includes Growl 1.3 support, media key functions for keyboards other than Apple’s, and various crash fixes.

Retina MacBook Pro apps expose full resolution

Retina MacBook Pro apps expose full resolution

When Apple introduced the Retina MacBook Pro, the logic behind the increase in resolution was the same as with the iPhone 4 and 4S. The user interface would remain the same, with graphical elements instead appearing crisper and sharper. While there are a few options to dabble with in the Display settings, Apple doesn’t allow users to expose the full 2880x1800 resolution for increased real estate. There are a couple of workarounds for the problem, however.

Retina MacBook Pro 4-monitor setup revealed

Retina MacBook Pro 4-monitor setup revealed

It appears that the Retina MacBook Pro has shown itself to be the first Mac notebook to exist with the power to work with four displays natively. The Mac Pro tower has an ability to power this many monitors, of course, but in that the Retina MacBook Pro has been proven this week to be able to run three monitors outside of its own this week via HDMI and Thunderbolt, it is a bit of a milestone for the manufacturer at least. And look at how awesome this setup looks!

iFixit tears down new MacBook Pro, compares it to Retina

With the teardown of the new Retina MacBook Pro out of the way, iFixit has turned its attention to the regular MacBook Pro that was refreshed with Intel’s new Ivy Bridge processors. While the gang wasn’t too crazy about the lack of the Retina MacBook Pro’s repairability, the vanilla version seems to fare better, receiving a 7/10 score. In the process of the teardown, iFixit has compared some of the internals to the Retina MacBook Pro.
