Apple And it was that time of the year again - Apple held one of its product announcements. This one focussed on the iPad mostly, and while some will call it a disappointment merely because virtually everything had already been leaked, I'm still in awe over the fact the newly announced iPad has a 2048x1536 display. My mind is blown.

I knew this was the case in my head, but didn't quite do the math enough to figure that out.

It wouldn't be apple if they didn't claim something absurd that wasn't true.

Still, this is the first ipad that I would consider buying. I hope this really just drives displays into higher Pixel densities all around. I want more than 1080 on my desktop!

Edit: doesn't Apple still sell displays? Well, their top of the line display is 2560-by-1440 27 inch. Compared to the ipad's 2048x 1536. So it has all of 540,672 pixels more for all of the extra size. Upgrade that already, will you apple?

Hopefully the next gen Cinema Displays will be 5760x3600 somewhere between 22-30" for 9x 1920x1200. I may not like Apple anymore, but I'd buy a display like that instantly.

Maybe a nice laptop at 3840x2400 at 15-18" for 4x 1920x1200?

The cinema displays are still expensive as heck, but hopefully a competitor would do it as well and drive the price down.

I would actually upgrade my display ( only third time in last fifteen years) for them.
