quote: If someone can afford a 30" 2560x1600 they can afford the GPU's to run it.
quote: I'm also pretty ticked off about the resolution. There is not a SINGLE monitor on newegg with a resolution that high that's even close to $500. It should be easier to make a 24" monitor with that resolution than a 9.7".
quote: Why do people keep saying things like this. It is not easier or cheaper to produce larger screens of equivalent resolution or pixel density to these smaller screens.
quote: Also, there is not a huge demand for anything over 1080p and I wonder if there ever will be (except if manufacturers like Apple force it that way). I don't know any average consumer who has an issue with 1080p even on their 50+" HDTVs, and many of my customers shrug off even the difference between SDTV and HDTV. I just don't see a huge demand really kicking in for these super high resolutions unless, again, manufacturers kind of force it to try and get more people buying new screens.
