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 agree with a couple of others here that this mistaken idea of computers as DVD players reduces their utility. I currently keep an old Dell I have alive because I can't find a laptop with 1920x1200 anymore. I may have to build my next portable machine (if not battery-powered) using one of the bare Retina screens you can find on eBay. Or load Linux or a BSD on a Transformer Infinity.

Congrats to Sony for this move, but they could take it further.
