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.

My lord, you people go to SUCH GREAT LENGTHS to find fault with something! If you like the way a product looks and it works for you, buy it, if not, don't, it doesn't take molecular analysis to make a decision about a tablet. You can't tell the difference between 720p and 1080p on any tablet or laptop screen anyway, good grief.

I wasn't finding fault with the actual product. I think it's pretty decent, for the most part, tbh.

I just wanted clarification on this "retina display" term.

I always thought it meant "pixels small enough not to be discernable at normal viewing distance", which would not necessarily be tied to a 300 ppi limit.

720p vs 1080p makes a massive difference especially for reading, documents & picture detail. That's 2.5 times the pixels!
