And laptops are eating the desktop market.
And the thing about laptops, is you can't really grow their physical
dimensions or they're no longuer portable.

So either harware manufacturers provide laptops with higher density
screens to justify their price, or they low-cost taiwanese eepcs eat it
all. I know what solution I'd prefer were I a manufacturer. But it all
depends on the software guys getting their stuff right.
