PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "It'll be a full x86 device - Lenovo calls a 'joint effort' with Intel and Microsoft - that clocks in at 1.3 pounds with a 10.1-inch 1366 x 768 display. It's billed to have 10-hour battery life, which would be impressive for a device only 9.8mm thick. The standard model is Wi-Fi-only, but there will also be carrier versions including one with AT&T's LTE connectivity." If you see a 1366x768 resolution on a 10.1" display, they blew it.

My laptop has a 15" display at that resolution. While I'd like it higher (Almost had it higher but didn't want to wait 3 weeks to get a higher-res version in the mail), it is perfectly usable, and doesn't look bad at all.

While a higher DPI screen can look significantly better when presented side-by-side with more standard screen resolutions, the difference is less noticeable, and less important, when the lower DPI screen is viewed on it's own.

I do feel limited by the 1366x768 resolution on this 15 inch screen; I'd much prefer something like 1680x1050. But, on a 10 inch tablet I think 1366x768 would be acceptable. Once your screen gets that small, the benefit of higher resolution begins to taper off and there comes a point where you have to zoom everything just to make it readable.
