[citation][nom]spookie[/nom]wow! I still wonder why they don't make 40'' + displays with beter than 1080p[/citation]
Because there is no widely available content to play on it?
Even 4K2K video is rarer than hen's teeth...

Because a computer desktop and space need (in graphical desing or multimedia) really cares about 4k videos no?
1080p is enough for viewing and understanding picture alright. but take a 4K2K 24" display and you will be amazed how much more every picture and movie (if any at that rez) would look like. it's not about giving enough detail anymore, it's how close to the real view it gets.
the goal of any screen now a days is to give the impression of looking through a hole in the wall, the downsize is when this reaches monitors just like 4k2k file sizes becomes the bottle neck, whos going to download 50gb+ when most ISP's have datacaps
[citation][nom]jldevoy[/nom]500dpi doesnt really help on a desktop other than for sharper image, youd need to scale everything up or sit with your nose against the screen to see things.[/citation]
This argument is tantamount to suggesting it 'doesn't really help' with anything. How is it good for a tablet and not for a desktop or laptop for that matter? The main goal of screen development is to make pixels invisible no matter what any screen is for. I can certainly see pixels on my 24" as well as my friends 30.
[citation][nom]cozmium[/nom]Honestly companies, will you hurry up and help out the stagnating pc market instead of too-small tablets? I'd pay good money for a 498 dpi, 24" monitor. The old ibm T221 is just a bit too dated.[/citation]
A 498 dpi, 24" monitor would have about 16 times more pixels than the 498 dpi, 6" monitor described in the article, since it has the same density and 4 times the width and 4 times the height. That is, 10240*6400.
What kind of graphics card would you need to play Crysis at that resolution, I wonder.
And a 2-hour movie at that resolution would have to be shipped on 30 Blu-Ray disks...
I'd love to see that monitor too, but I don't think we're quite ready for it yet....
