Apple just announced the new iPad with a "Retina Display". The screen size remains unchanged at 9.7-inches measured diagonally. The resolution is an expected 2048 x 1536, with 3.1 million total pixels at a density of 264 pixels per inch. Apple is also claiming a 44% increase in color saturation on the new iPad.

    If it takes this tablet to push starts a rush towards higher resolution displays, I welcome the new iPad. Getting tired of the usual 1080p crap. Let's move towards 4K swiftly. Reply

    I'm not against higher resolutions, but there's a reasonable limit. This is pretty close to it.

    I just wish most laptops didn't have 1366x768 screens. I'd be happy if 1920x1080 (or 1920x1200) finally became the norm for 15" laptops.

    4K is still very limited by bandwidth and optical storage - until at least one of those is solved, 4K is going nowhere, except high-end monitors.

    I agree. If this doesd nothing but help kill off 1366x768 screens its a win for everyone. Thanks Apple. Reply

    Well the reasonable limit is when text doesn't get any sharper. Whats the reasonable limit for laser printer output? lasers do 600-1800 dpi! Reply
