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.

"[q]Wow, people actually want low screen resolutions by choice?

Hell,yes pea-brain. Unlike you and your friends, not everyone is a brain-damaged gamer.
"

How is a a lower resolution better? Is because buttons and other things get smaller? That isn't an issue of resolution. It's an issue of "resolution independence" with the graphical interface. I don't think people should be demanding LOWER resolutions, but more resolution independent interfaces. [/q]

God almighty. What ever happened to using the simplest solution, a lower res screen instead of dealing with this garbage?
