If Samsung(and Apple) can release laptop with high resolution, why aren't we hearing about new monitors to be released with such high res? Surely 3840*2400 or 3840*2160 makes more sense on a 24 inch monitor than 3200*1800 on a 13.3 inch laptop screen?!?

Good question. Dunno why the PC market has to wait for the TV market to make 4K a standard.

how can you tell the difference between fullhd and 3840*2400 on 13.3 inch screen , and also theirs no movie to support these resolution natively and theirs no chance in hell that it can play games natively , maybe valve games but that's it .

It will help on text documents... At least the smoothness of text is like a night and day difference on iPad 2 and 3.

Yeah that doesn't make sense. We want higher resolution monitors because we can utilise them almost right away. I believe we will need new connections, as far as I know HDMI 1.4 is the only which can deliver 60Hz on such a high res.

Oh and the scaling in Windows is pretty poor atm. Do you think MS will update Win 7 and 8 to make them scale better... Or will that option come in Win 9?

Well technically movies are filmed in 4096x2160p resolution (or with analog film equal to 4K) and shown in 4K resolution or IMAX which is approximately 20mp in the cinemas and then are downsized to 1920x1080p when released for Blu-ray, Netflix, etc.

 

So it shouldn't be a problem getting 4K content really. Now getting native 8K content.. that's more of a problem as they are only about 3 JVC 8K cameras in the world, and were last used by NHK/BBC in the olympics London 2012.

IBM made a 4K monitor more than 10 years ago:

But broadcasting and distribution of 4K content is not possible for time being, except over the web. I'm glad they are slowly coming, even if it starts with TV and laptops
