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.

Yeah, what the hell are you talking about. Buy a 30" monitor that does 2560x1600 or a 27" at 2560x1440 then - that's all been out for years. Getting a tablet that is essentially (older) laser printer quality on a 9.7" screen, that's going to be fantastic for browsing and reading.

Laser printers are 1200dpi, even the very cheap ones for home use are at least 600dpi. 300dpi is the resolution of 1980s dot-matrix printers, or very early crappy inkjets.

well... NO.

best Dot matrix printers from 80s have up to 240DPI resolution.

First laser printers (LaserWriter, Atari SLM 804, LaserJet...) have 300DPI.
