on a 14" laptop that costs $1000+? Have we gone back to 2005?

No we haven't as most standard users don't even care or probably know the difference between 1366x768, 1600x900 or anything else. They understand buzz words from marketing departments.

P.s. This is a portable machine and although it might be nice to have a 1080p display it would probably make the user go blind

Not to mention have a higher resolution than 1600 x 900 on a 14" machine put a lot of strain on the eye. Even I think 1600 x 900 on a 14" machine is a bit much.

Agreed on this too! I have a 15.6" Dell XPS with 1080p screen which is awesome when using on the lap but is an insane eye straining device when placed on a desk in a work environment while using external keyboard/mouse.

Hey wise guy, Mr. know-it-all, changing font-size and icon size doesn't make everything look alright. There's a reason why OS developers are working on Resolution Independence. Yea, the REAL WORLD.

I guarantee your desktop will look like shit. Why do you think people complain that they can't see shit out of their Hi-Res laptops? Are they all that stupid?

If I give you a 10MP laptop with 96dpi icons and crappy fonts, you'll wish you return your laptop back ASAP. And oh, you crappy IGP will not able to handle 10MP because your display memory is shit and forget about external monitor option.

You obvious haven't used a Hi-Res screen because I have and I have done everything you mentioned above. Windows XP will look like CRAP. Don't take my word for it, do it yourself.
Win7 looks better, but not ideal. It's a simple fact based on empirical evidence and general consensus amongst many credible sources.

If you are closed minded and judgemental, maybe you can learn a thing or two. Bring your ego down from a 10 down to a 2, and listen to what others have to say.
