Hardware, Embedded Systems News of the year in the technology industry. "The Fit's most important spec its display, with a nod to Sony's TV division: they come with 1600x900 or 1920x1080 touchscreens and nothing else. 'We're not going to offer 1366x768," reps said. 'We've killed that.'" This is Sony's new, simplified entry-level notebook line. Very, very welcome news in a world where even a supposedly "Pro" laptop that costs $1199 ships with... A 1280x800 resolution. This bottom-of-the-barrel crap needs to be eradicated, and good on Sony for taking this step.

My vision isn't great and I welcome the higher resolution. It's pretty easy to adjust the font size and it's always possible to lower the screen resolution. You don't have to use the monitor's max resolution if you don't want it. This move by Sony is great for those who want higher resolutions and will have zero affect on people with poor vision.
