Microsoft Microsoft's applied sciences department manager Stevie Bathich explains why the 1366x768 Surface RT screen is actually better than the iPad's Retina display - fancy display technology talk. Conclusion? "Doing a side by side with the new iPad in a consistently lit room, we have had many people see more detail on Surface RT than on the iPad with more resolution." I'm sure there's some truth behind the sciency talk, but I highly doubt that the Surface's display bests the iPad's. Seeing is believing, but since The Netherlands is not important, I won't get the opportunity to compare for a long time to come.

I wouldn't even claim that I disagree with you on most of the things you wrote. But I still don't like how you answer my posting.


1. I never talked about the iPad or said that the iPad's resolution is the way to go. As an example, you could go for full HD, which is a very practical resolution and has only twice the amount of pixels. But all I'm saying in my posting is that Microsoft's spin on the issue is disinformation. A higher resolution is not academic, it *can* help in certain areas.

2. I don't care how Surface compares to the iPad. I just hate when people invent "perceived resolution" or terms alike to play down the lack of *real* resolution. And I find it amusing when other people call a lack a feature out of pure fanboyishm.

3. I also don't care about the pricing of Surface. Why are you telling me all this stuff?

Sorry, I wasn't trying to direct anything at you specifically - topics from some previous discussions sort of carried over into this. I apologize for that.
