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.

You mean 1366x768, which is the 16:9 widescreen resolution most common nowadays. 1366x900 isn't 16:9 or 16:10 (1366x853 is 16:10).

1440x900 is the "standard" 16:10 resolution, and is way too common on 19-24" widescreens.

768 vertical pixels is not enough to do anything. Really, 1024 vertical pixels should be the minimum. And it's very hard to find widescreen monitors that are over 9" tall with over 1024 vertical pixels. ;)

Migrating from 19" 1280x1024 4:3 screens requires 23" 16:9 screens in order to not lose vertical screen real estate (physical or logical). ;) Which takes up a *lot* more physical desk space.

I miss my old IBM CRT 21" screen that supported more than "FullHD" resolutions. Unfortunately, it was over 80 lbs and warped my desk. But the resolutions it supported ...
