Re: No touch, but more of everything else, for about the same money
Why are the fanbois trying to equate this gorgeous (Samsung?) panel with Apple's "retina" display? Just because they're both hi-res the Apple one must be at least good 'cos it's trumpeted by apple?
When you (and Apple Inc for that matter) see one of these beside a "retina" device there'll be:
1) A gasp and long stunned silence.
2) Floods of tears and annoying high-pitched whining.
3) A new MacBook DoublePlusPro for actual professionals.*
*Professionals: People who know how to profile, calibrate and test a display and/or are fully aware that letterbox formats, while fine for a telly or similar shiny toy, are unfit for a work machine. Especially on a small display where every scrap of VERTICAL space is precious. You know what work is... that thing professionals often use their computers for.
No discredit to Apple. They did reintroduce sensible resolutions to consumer computers when the trend was convergence with cheap telly panels... but... as has been their pattern of late, their "revolution" came with raucous hype but tech that wasn't quite up to spec.
