It's only 220ppi, far less than the 330ppi they claimed is necessary when releasing the iPhone at 336ppi.

Actually by their "retina" standard the viewing distance is 1 foot for the iPhone. My laptop is usually that close too, maybe a few extra inches.

This isn't how everyone uses a laptop? Maybe I shouldn't have ridiculed all of those people at Starbucks...
