Maybe a bit excessive, but as someone who does video work, some of my best work is done at excessively high resolutions and then shrunk for better visual quality. Perhaps Apple had a similar thought in mind.
Supporting impractical features can be a good thing sometimes...if they can make a monitor with pixels 1/10th the size of current ones, we'd be in for a visual treat. This icon business, however, probably could have been held off for three or four years.
Ah. Lets compare a brand new system against an older system that is already out on the market.
Seems hardly fair eh?
Would you mind scanning the article and sticking it online, I am intrigued to read it. Considering Vista has been taking a lot of criticism to the fact that Vista screen-shots look so much like Apple Mac OS X screen-shots. Since I love quotes, I feel that this one applies:
I could see it being good. Since that is 512 X 512 pixels used up. Monitors are being more dense with more pixels per inch, or dots per inch it would mean that icons that looked big now would look really small. For some reason the monster icons are going to be a forerunner, somehow I have a feeling Apple is going to come out with some new revolutionary screen. I will wait and see.
