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

Because "Retina" is based on view distance.
Know the rules well, so you can break them effectively.

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.

You're sitting with your chin on the keyboard? Must be awkward

I think you need to get a better posture for when you use a laptop because that's not healthy.

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