    Would you prefer a cheaper TouchPad (with all the current specs) or more expensive but a retina display?

    (This was inspired by: Samsung demos retina resolution 300dpi tablet display - wow, Samsung has redone their tablets and become a real competitor to the iPad in the span of 3-4 months!)

    $350 Touchpad with the current spec.
    The second choice can wait for Fall.

    you do know retina display is just a label apple slapped onto its resolution pixel density. Retina display doesnt mean jack

    Its basically a resolution with a pixel density of 320 ppi on a specific screen size..

    I thought it was called retina display because Apple was able to use it to watch you like it was an eye!

    Apple's device doesn't have a retina display... it has marketing diarrhea as a name.

    This is a retina display.

    Have you ever looked at one in person? It's pretty impressive. A display with 300+ ppi on a tablet would be phenomenal.

    I agree with this. I really hope HP realizes how big of a difference a low price point can make. $350 (which they won't do) would sell a TON of TouchPads.

    Yes I have spent plenty time in an iPhone 4. The thing is I do not think its worth $250 over what the current iPad display is at. Maybe 100 more but def. not $250.

    The poll was either a $350 TP with current ppi or a $600 TP with a 320+ ppi..

    In this economy? I'd much rather have a less expensive device. The display on the TouchPad is beautiful as it is when you see it in person. Retina display isn't worth the extra $$ and $ to me right now.

    What gets me about Apple is how everybody will use their terms immediately after they create a new marketing name for any of their products.

    FYI: a "retina" display by their own definition is one with a resolution so high that your eye cannot discern individual pixels. Hence, EVERY display is a "retina" display at varying distances from your eye. So the TouchPad has a retina display already! Yay!

    having "retna display" doesnt really matter to me, so long as the display is decent. i'm in it more for the software.

    Yeah, I want a display that is so high resolution, that I won't be able to discern individual pixels when I hold it right up in my face. And I want that resolution on a 10" screen.
