Apple Apple makes the best consumer laptops. For me, there's absolutely no denying that this is the case. Apple has had this lead over the competition since the iBook G3 Dual USB 12.1" and 14", and has never lost it. Right now, the rumour mill is abuzz about Apple supposedly prepping to launch a MacBook Pro with a retina display - 2880x1800.

I believe IBM has a 1920*2 by 1200*2 but still in a 24" maybe 28" package, it is meant for medical imaging, xrays etc.

IBM has had double resolution panels for a very long time now even when they were all monochrome.

The T221, IIRC. The glass was made by IDTech, some of the electronics and housing by IBM.

Yeah, problem is they stopped making those years ago, the best being the T221-DG5 3840x2400@48Hz Yeah, that may sound like a really low refresh rate, but really, what GPU can push that res at over 48FPS 48Hz in current applications consistently?

But whats nice is it's 2x normal film rate. Either way though, hen they where current they cost as much as a car...
