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?

Hear, Hear. If not even Apple herself knows what a "retina display" actually is, since the definition changes with each new device, why should we use it in a serious discussion? If you want to say greater than 300dpi, say "greater than 300 dpi".
We should never use terms that came from marketing, it just causes confusion, like "is this video HD or Full HD or Super Ultra Mega HD?"
