In the business world people do NOT HDvideo all day long. In fact, they shouldnt be doing that at all in 99.9% of businesses. What on earth are these manufacturers doing creating these silly screens? What is wanted are portrait screens in ultra hi res so that an A4 page can be easily read. IMO, if a screen is as large as an A4, it needs to show the details one could see on an A4. ie. WHERE ARE THE 240 or 300 dpi screens? Where are the screens that can match our DSLR cameras? There are no more excuses that the GPU can't handle hi-res. They can all handle 2560x1600 AND HIGHER with eyefinity etc.
This is one of the major reasons i want a higher res than 1080, i spend a lot of time on the desktop and the more vertical space i have the better for viewing web pages amongst other things.
And game wise as well as i will be going with eyefinity or nvidia surround in the near future so hight per monitor is a very importaint thing when the horizontal res could be 5760 or even 7860.
