Bingo. Pixel count is huge important...but so is screen SIZE. Cant beat having a 30" for excel and another for Photoshop. :)

My point is that "______phile" people always perceive some minute difference that no one else can, or cares to look for.

I think a Retina display is another "solution" looking for a "problem" to fix.

I think it's more bother than it's worth..... but visualphiles see the big difference no one else can.

Actually, that isnt hyperbole as such. A couple years ago studies were done and 1080p vs 720p was shown to be indistinguishable at normal viewing distances on anything below (IIRC and might be wrong) 46" screens. On monitors most peeps cant tell the difference once the pixel density hits a certain point. Its only a boon for photo editors and the such. Personally I want a 30" version. THEN it will be useful. Until then its a fancy toy.
