Nothing else will do.

Not just another laptop. The screen is 3200x1800 which is higher than the best Apples.

If you are sick of looking at your 10-36MP pictures on a 2MP screen the solution is clear. You also get a whole PC, portable no less, for about 2x the price of a 2560 x whatever monitor.

I thought the whole point of Apple's Retina display was that the human eye couldn't distinguish anything of greater detail.

The retinas are what 288 ppi? You might not be able to see the pixel grid but you do see a fine blur on the screen. I looked myself yesterday in best buy. If you check out clarkvision.com he did a test with people looking at prints. Most people can clearly see an advantage up to about 400-600 dpi. As in a 350 dpi print side by side is clearly inferior.

A lot more of these 3600x1800 pixel screens are coming out for Christmas so I am waiting for the boxing day sale.
