Screw that, resolutions on PC monitors are just fine the way they are. Apple can get away with the higher resolutions because everything is the same size relative to the screen size, resolution doesn't matter. So a button that is 1"x1" will be 1"x1" at 1024x768 or 2048x1536, but button will just be sharper at the higher resolution because more pixels make it up. PCs don't work that way, if you increase the resolution, things get smaller and harder to read, you can fit more on the screen, but everything is smaller. Until PCs can manage a systems of increasing the DPI to scale with resolution better, and a system where increasing the DPI actually works and doesn't break things, high resolutions in small monitors isn't something the majority of the public would like.
