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?

Does nobody tile windows on their screen?

That again would give you too little horizontal space per window. eg: 56% of all laptops now have 1366x900, so that would give you 1366/2 = 683px per window if you have two windows tiled. Now include window borders, scrollbars etc and you have even less "usable space" per window.

600 pixels is wider than the text box I am typing in.

I am running a slightly higher resolution (1440x900) than that and don't have any problems with Tiling 2 windows per monitor (I have 2)

I usually tile VS 2010, SQL Server Management Studio, Firefox and Firebug and I don't have any problems.
