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?

Exactly. It's just a marketing term, not a specification based on resolution, screen size, pixel size, etc.

Thus, it shouldn't be used to describe anything other than Apple Retina Displays (TM).

It's actually kind of revolting that Intel would try to market "retina displays" instead of listing the actual DPI of the screen.
