I believe I said my computer will be for work... And we don't run apps there is nothing for me to run side by side. I know what 1366 and 1080 both look like on the same size monitor, 1366 works for me. Anything bigger and I have to drop resolution down any way to read at a distance when I'm going between multiple computers. No one is arguing both don't have their places. It's like buying a MacBook Pro 13", some need the retina display, some don't of need to save money. There should definitely always be the option.
