Even if just 20''. It would be my dream monitor.
yes 1080p do u really think that the mba has that high pixel density it really isn't that high
Yes I think it does because it looks completely different when you see the screen, you can notice right away how crisp and razor sharp everything is.
Unfortunately high pixel density monitors in large sizes are very difficult to produce. So they are very expensive.
NEC has some at 2048x1536 21" screens in the $3500 to $4000 range. Planar also makes some high DPI screens (2560x2048 @ 21.3") for medical imaging starting at around $8000 (grayscale only).
Your best bet would be a small screen. They do make 1920x1080 panels in 15" to 17" sizes as they are available for notebooks. But you may have a tough time finding one for a desktop.
Do they make 13inch high pixel density external display?
It seems unfair that to enjoy the pixel density you have to buy a whole notebook (MBA) but MBA seems very nice all around, a fast and light laptop. So I am inclined to think that it's a fantastic computer.
Amazing power of MacBook Air.
I read this and I want a MBA! So probably. I should buy the base $1000 MBA plus 20'' ISP display for about $200 for a total of 1200.....
That's common knowledge on this forum, and the other Sandy Bridge intel cpus work the same way. Those in the imac and macbook pros can actually go higher. You actually have Intel to thank for this technology. I imagine research like this is intended to help compete with ARM in the longer term.
You think that's expensive? Look up Barco . TN panels which are used in the Apple laptops have seen far greater gains over the past few years. I'm not going into all of the engineering difficulties this presents, but some of these companies publish white papers.
Jumpin' Jehoshaphat! I'd love to have their 3280x2048 30" display. It's a steal at only $17,500.
There are a fair number of 16x10, 1920x1200 monitors available. $200 to $300 range for 24" TN panels. $400 to $500 for 24" IPS panels. The Dell Ultrasharps, some Samsung Syncmasters, the HP ZR24w, etc.
