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.

Another advantage to 1600*1200 is easy scaling without the fuzz.

1600*1200 easy to 800*600 for poorer eye-sight.
1920*1200 becomes 960*600 also easy to read.


1366*768 becomes yuck if you scale it down. Of-course you don't but you lost the chance to see finer detail in a lot of material. Even people with poorer eyesight will notice if difference went viewing some material.
