Remember last month, when the rumor mill was all aflutter with word of MacBook Pros featuring high-DPI displays? Apple still hasn't made an announcement, but the recently released Mac OS X 10.7.3 update seems to lend weight to the rumors.
That's because, as John Gruber of Daring Fireball points out, the update replaces age-old cursor icons with new, vector equivalents that scale up gracefully. You can compare the new and old cursors for yourself here. Mac users can see the new cursors in all of their glory by bumping up the system cursor size through the Universal Access settings pane, as I did myself a minute ago:
And that's not all. This tweet, linked by Gruber, says a Mac mini defaulted to high-DPI mode (with an effective resolution of 960x540) when connected to a 1080p HDTV.
Last month's rumors originate from DigiTimes, and they suggest Apple will introduce a whole lineup of MacBook Pro laptops with 2880x1800 displays. "Sources in the upstream supply chain" reportedly expect to see the machines debut next quarter.
