As I’ve been thinking about the future of my desktop monitor I was struggling to really visualize the difference between the various resolutions being discussed. To help myself better understand the differences in size I put together a graphic showing them all in context. Starting with the iPhone all the way up to a theoretical Retina 27″ Thunderbolt Display.
I expect to keep this updated as new displays are released so I also setup a new permanent home for it at: http://david-smith.org/displays
