I'm so glad that people's opinions are finally shifting. 2 years ago, anyone suggesting that 1080p was insufficient for a laptop would be ridiculed by naysayers who were perfectly content with 1600x900 offerings.
Fast forward to today, and people are finally realizing that it sucks when you have a smartphone 1/4th the size of your laptop--but with equal or higher resolution. No Duh! Maybe now all the brain-dead, unwashed masses will stop throwing around bunk like "it's impossible to read anything on a high resolution display!!!"
