Decent smartphones cost an average of $500-700 (ignoring the Nexus 4, which is sold to make profits via other channels) for a significantly more limited and less capable device. I don't see your point.

I have an old 17" Dell laptop with 1200p resolution, and I have to tell you that having Windows 7 on it is a disaster. Naturally I cannot use default 100%DPI mode because I would have to use magnify glass to be able to read any menus, but everything above 115% DPI will make a COMPLETE MESS everywhere. Windows, menus, fonts overlapping, etc. And don't get me started with Java or Flash applications...worst crap ever invented which don't even scale or zoom.
So probably this very high res works best on MACs and other Apple devices, but not for Windows devices, so if you are NOT a gamer or do not work in IT or Engineering industry, please feel free to buy any Apple toys you might desire. End.
The beauty of OS X is that it scales magnificently.
