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.

I do not understand how my desire for a lower resolution screen is equivalent to someone who has no idea how LCD screens work.

In fact, someone as you describe, would not care one way or the other about screens using higher resolutions since they would simply put it to some arbitrary resolution they like, without a care.

I on the other hand use my devices on their native resolution and prefer my windows, buttons, text, icons, and other screen elements to be a reasonable size without paying the penalties to have a high resolution screen mimic this with higher DPI.
