But until the iPhone and iPad, near as I can tell, nobody else was even trying to improve resolution on computer displays There's a reason for this = pixel density above ~100ppi is irrelevant on desktops and laptops. These devices are viewed typically 25" from your eyes, which is double the viewing distance of tablets! At this distance, one can't distinguish individual pixels and a typical 92ppi 24" monitor qualifies as "Retina". Even the low ppi on HDTVs are fine. Since you're sitting typically 6-8 ft away, your eyes can't distinguish pixels on 1080p 50" display and thus these devices also qualify as "Retina" too. So relatively, the iPadNew really didn't achieve anything astounding in terms of display technology -- in fact, computers and TVs have had "Retina" display for years. iPadNew just brought tablets up to speed.
