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.

"Low resolution" is relative to the physical size of the display. 1366x768 is not necessarily low.

Yep, agreed! And distance from our eyes to the screen. If I'm a normal person with 11.6" netbook 1366x768 screen, with ~50cm distance from eyes to screen (most relaxed position for typing or enjoying moview), I think it's crispy enough.
