Hardware, Embedded Systems "Asus has just announced the cure for the common 20-something-inch 1080p display: a small TV-sized 31.5-inch monitor with a massive resolution of 3840x2160. Engadget reports that the Asus PQ321 display, which uses IGZO technology to reduce energy usage and thickness, includes DisplayPort and dual-HDMI input, integrated speakers, and an adjustable stand." The dread of 1366 and 1080p is being removed. Finally.

What? The Apple Cinema display is a decent screen, but far from alone at 2560x1440, and not really of outstanding quality at its price. Not now, not ever. And while the PC world might have stagnated at 1080p, your "regression" to 1366x768 was in a different format: laptops.

Laptops and low end desktop LCDs that come with most comps. I'd rather take a 1280x800 or 1280x1024 over 1366x768.

The 30" Cinema was 2560x1600 not 1440, thats significantly more space, especially if you had the glory to have 2 of those monsters on your desk. Yeah, at that time even the beastly 8800 Ultra couldn't adequately power them for gaming. It also has a better color gamut then most of the screens on the market, which is important if you do any kind of photo or video editing.

Now though the ones I used a good 6 years ago are more then likely outclassed in gamut by high end IPS panels that have started coming out over the last year or so.

Most low-end laptops came with 1024x768. Even Apple's iBooks were 1024x768 till the bitter end. More expensive models had a great variety, I'll give you that. As for the 30" Apple Cinema, it's not nearly unique, and wasn't then either. Dell had a 30", HP had one, LG had one. They still do.
