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.

That's what I was saying earlier! A 9.7" screen at that resolution is not only wasteful in usage, but wasteful in battery and GPU/CPU usage.

Stick it on a tablet or a large screen LED display!

Oops, I meant stick it on a Large screen display, not a tablet.

Seriously, I would die for a computer screen that is 32" or bigger with that resolution.

I think my 21" CRT would do that resolution, but only at 60hz, which made it unusable. I would love an LCD/LED that would do it. Well, change that, I want an LCD/LED that does a wide screen version. 4:3 ratio is so 1990s...

Widescreen LCD that would do it?

27" Apple Cinema Display 2560x1440
