Are you kidding me? I'd love to get 1920x1080 in a 12" or even 10" display on 
a laptop. I don't need OpenGL or even any kind of heavily accelerated 
graphics, just lots of pixels and a small dot pitch.

I've got a pair of 2048x1152 23" monitors at the desk which helps with the 
schematic entry and board layout side of things, but a nice high dot pitch on 
the laptop would make reading and editing code a truly pleasant experience.

mmm... 1080p AMOLED and ARM processor... come on...
