Trent’anni di differenza

Things of Interest ha sovrapposto lo schermo del primo Macintosh a quello del nuovo iMac con Retina Display. Guardate l’immagine a schermo intero, e zoommate fino all’angolo in basso a sinistra dove, finalmente, piccolo piccolo, trovate lo schermo del primo Macintosh.

When first released in 1984, the Apple Macintosh shipped with a black-and-white 512 x 342 display. Fast forward 30 years to the release of the iMac with Retina 5K display, which ships with a 5,120 x 2,880 display with support for millions of colours. That’s an increase from 175,000 pixels to more than 14.7 million – an 8,400% increase. 80 of the original Macintosh displays fit within a single Retina 5K display1.
