I have been wondering for a long time why are the desktop screens so restricted in terms of thickness and resolution (edit: pixel density). How can a laptop screen be 15", 1920 x 1200, and 1/2 inch thick; when the desktop screens are 2" thick, and 1024 x 768. (To get as high resolution, you have to go up to a 23"). Also, in the 17" models it is the same story, you can get ultra high resolution, thin screens on a laptop, but thick(er) lower resolution on a desktop. I am not talking about overall resoultion, but the density of the pixels. I would pay a lot of money for a desktop screen with that resolution in that small of a package and that thickness. We have the technology, just no one wants to implement it. I am wondering if this is some sort of conspiracy between the manufactures of the LCD's. -Ted Edit: added a few phrases.
