Retina Display matters. Period. Anyone who say’s Retina Display on the new iPad doesn’t matter is crazy and probably has not seen just how great it looks yet. It’s just that, Retina Display will mean a lot to some users and not much to other users. To one group of users, this will be what makes them go out and upgrade to Apple’s new iPad, and to others it won’t mean as much and they will look to other features as reason to upgrade. The question remains though, who does Retina Display matter to? It’s simple, depends on how you use your device.
Who it matter’s to?
Retina Display simply deals with the resolution on the new iPad which means that it will matter to those who really care about the quality of things such as pictures and video streaming or those who just like to have a really nice display on their tablet. This means that many of these users will enjoy Retina Display because it significantly increases the pleasure of the activities they use their iPad for or simply because they want the best looking thing out there.
Most of this audience will consist of iPad users who use their iPad for non-business uses such as web browsing, gaming, video streaming, and other things. It will also matter to some business users who are involved with things such as art, in which display plays a dominant role. Simply put, Retina Display matters to those who enjoy a great display for things such as gaming and video streaming and for those who need it for what they do, because display plays a dominant role in what they do.
Who it doesn’t matter to?
So if Retina Display matters to those who need it or really care about the display for the things they do then who doesn’t it matter to cause after all doesn’t everyone care in some part about the display on their device? Yes, everyone in part does care about the display on their device because after all you want to be able to make out what you’re looking at on any device whether it be a phone, tablet, or any other device for that matter. These users though are seen as the people that won’t really feel the need to upgrade to the new iPad because they don’t need a great display or because it doesn’t really cater to their needs.
Most of those who won’t pay much attention to Retina Display are those who really use their device for business purposes such as making graphs/charts, checking email, etc. Yeah you could say that all that stuff would look better on the new iPad with Retina Display but it won’t be reason enough for most of these users to upgrade simply because the iPad 2 has a good display that does just fine for all these things. The reason for many of these users to upgrade would most likely be because of new features such as LTE support and Bluetooth 4.0 which would allow their device to become more capable as a business tool. These users simply feel that the only reason to upgrade is if the new device offers more features in form of business tools for their device. In other words it should be able to actually do something not just look better.
Just as I said before, how important Retina Display is to a user depends on how that particular user uses their iPad. If you’re a user who uses the iPad for things such as gaming, pictures, and video streaming, then Retina Display is a dream come true. On the other hand if you’re a kind of user who spends most of their time on their iPad for work related activities such as making graphs, browsing web and checking email, then Retina Display is not really that important as opposed to features such as LTE support and Bluetooth 4.0.
