This Is How the New iPad and the Original Macintosh Screen Compare

A great demonstration of how far we have come, one iPad retina icon vs the whole of the first macs desktop…

The original Macintosh, released in 1984, had a monochrome 512 × 342 pixel display. That was 175,104 points. The pixel density was very low: 72 dots per inch. The iPad now has 3.14 million pixels. At 9.7 inches, that’s 264 dots per inch. 3.66 times as much pixel density. If you made the iPad at 72dpi, then you would get a tablet the size of a large TV (Gene Munster just wet his pants now).
