Hi-Res images spotted in latest Messages Beta hinting at Retina Display Macs.
The first Apple Macs with a retinadisplay are likely to be released this year. The resolution of a Retina Mac would be 2,880x1,800px. My 27-inch iMac has a resolution of 2,560x1,440px. On the big displays the increased resolution will not make such a big difference. On a 15-inch MacBook Air a 2,880x1,800px resolution would be extremely beautiful.
MacRumors found a hint the just released Messages Beta for Mac app suggesting that Retina Display Macs are near. Additionally images are stored with a "2x" moniker in the filename. This is similar to iOS.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
