Samsung Unveils New 10" Retina Display 155

adeelarshad82 writes "Samsung has unveiled a brand new 10.1-inch display that supports a maximum of 2560×1600 pixel resolution that could be ripe for next generation tablets. Samsung's new display is more of a tech demo than anything else at this stage. While it looks impressive, it's not quite ready for broad production. It does, however, prove that high pixel density and high-resolution tablet displays are possible without unreasonable power requirements coming along in the process."

    Screw tablets, I want this resolution on a laptop. It's damn near impossible to get a reasonable priced laptop with more than 1366x768. Most companies don't have them at all. Even MBPs only have 1440x900. A laptop graphics card can handle the resolution ... I would have thought these would be more common by now.

    for some weird reason, resolutions are going down, not up.
    A 5 yr old budget laptop had a 1280*1024 screen
    My 3 year old budget laptop has a 1280*800 screen
    current laptops in the same price range are 1366*768

    A few years and will the resolution be 10000*1 ?

    And worse, it is one with no real definition. At least HD has some definitions, even though people often play fast and lose with them. "Retina" just seems to mean "High pixel density." Apple's marketing department coined the term to imply that the display has a resolution equal to your eye. Of course that isn't the case, it is dependent on distance. However it worked for marketing and apparently has caught on with people.

    I actually expected something like an implant or a projection upon the retina...a contact lense would have been enough for christs's sake...but no it's a marketing term that i never heard before..

    My 15" MBP has the 1680x1050 anti-glare screen, which really pushes the usability of some of the OS X widgets. Any 15" MBP can be ordered with it. I don't know if you'd want to go that much higher on any "modern" OS, until they are display resolution independent.

    Too small of a dot pitch simply makes most operating systems unusable or irritating -- this box is too small, this text in this section needs to be enlarged, this document needs to be zoomed -- and so the demand for higher resolution displays just isn't there.
