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.

Wanting a resolution that is more pleasing to look at is hardly grounds for such a statement.

While I have 20/20 vision, looking at tiny windows, tiny buttons, and tiny text is not my idea of an enjoyable experience. Increasing the DPI to effectively mimic a lower resolution, while paying the cost (monetary) and (power) and (processing power) to get exactly what I can already get with a lower resolution screen seems like quite the effort for no gain.
