Intel It looks like 2013 is finally going to be the year that we're going to see truly high resolution displays - according to Intel. Retina displays for laptops and desktops for everyone. Considering promises regarding HDPI have been thrown our way for years now, it's high time they became reality. As the article mentions, there's one interesting possible issue: Windows 8's desktop mode. How will it handle HDPI displays?

My paranoid prediction : Windows 8 desktop mode will not support high DPI, Microsoft will take much care not to patch this, and then they will present this as an asset of their Metro interface in order to get people to use it.
