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.

I see the 'MBPro with retina display' at 2560x1600 which -speaking roughly- beats the crap out of 1600x900.

There is a price tag but it seems that Apple realizes there are people willing to go super-pro and people not willing to go super-pro.

But, as a matter of fact, I thought this piece of news was about... Sony?

Pffft "super-pro," you ain't ballin' unless you go hyper-pro son.

I don't see how "pro" is a function of screen resolution.

Well, it seemed so to the OP... which is why I spoke like that.
