Just imagine the money spent on a system to run games playable on that.

Default Re: what are the REALLY high resolutions for?

when I first got a computer the screen was set to 480x600 and that was fine.

then along came the joys of higher resolution.

and lo, I could have more windows tiled all at once, and more stuff in the windows I had on a large screen...


the trend continues

For $1799, I'll stick with my 15.4" widescreen laptop display. Sure looks nice though!
