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.

You make the false assumption that you need to have the screen a few inches from your face to tell the difference. The whole point is to have the resolution so high that the physical pixels are so small that their size ad shape are imperceptible.

Who cares about a dead or stuck pixel that is too small to see from the surrounding pixels? How about eliminating the need for anti anti-aliasing since the resolution is so high that you can't see that the pixels aren't round?
