Intel It looks like 2013 is finally going to be the year that we're going to see truly high resolution displays - according to Intel. Retina displays for laptops and desktops for everyone. Considering promises regarding HDPI have been thrown our way for years now, it's high time they became reality. As the article mentions, there's one interesting possible issue: Windows 8's desktop mode. How will it handle HDPI displays?

Can we please stop using "Retina display" to mean higher resolution? It as ridiculous as "web 2.0".

I like the name though I hate Apple. It makes it clear we are talking about an extremely high dpi display. How would you market it?

"Retina Display" is an Apple trademark and does not refer to any specific resolution, screen size, pixel size, etc. It's just a marketing term that means different things for different displays (neither the iPhone 4S nor the iPad 3 have the same resolution, screen size, or DPI, but they both have "Retina Displays" (tm)).
