Yeah.. or smartphones... maybe I should check my coffee maker & my

Just kiddin' and thanks much for the links.. the issue being I guess
that not many GPUs can handle 200+ ppi's on screens bigger than 10".. 

Sorry for the OT, but it's been many years I wished something like the
lower end of print quality, say 300 ppi.. were available for computer
displays. Instead you go to Best Buy and you get to pay lots more for
a heavier bigger hungrier appliance.. with a lower ppi..! Go figure.
