Hardware, Embedded Systems News of the year in the technology industry. "The Fit's most important spec its display, with a nod to Sony's TV division: they come with 1600x900 or 1920x1080 touchscreens and nothing else. 'We're not going to offer 1366x768," reps said. 'We've killed that.'" This is Sony's new, simplified entry-level notebook line. Very, very welcome news in a world where even a supposedly "Pro" laptop that costs $1199 ships with... A 1280x800 resolution. This bottom-of-the-barrel crap needs to be eradicated, and good on Sony for taking this step.

That is great news for all the people with perfect vision, I went out and specifically bought a laptop with 1366x768 because it is easier to read on.


Ha, I had the same reaction at first. But I doubt too many people like us who have crappy vision are buying laptops in the first place. We're probably too small of a minority to really matter.

On my desktop, I run at a very odd resolution of 1152 x 864. That's as small as I can make things and still be able to see.

You are probably right we don't matter. I like having a laptop for a few different reasons and spend much more time on it than a desktop.

Thom I have tried changing DPI but most times it makes things fuzzy and I have enough issues seeing the screen without adding fuzz.
