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?

It's crazy how these days you can't get decent 4:3 monitors. I absolutely hate wide screen monitors, I use my monitor for work, not for watching porn.


Why is widescreen a problem for work? For me, it's perfect - I can display two documents side-by-side, e.g a code diff tool, a code window with console output on one side, a spec document next to the code, etc. Sure, vertical space is important too, but the more horizontal pixels, the better...
