Re: Screen resolution
My point is most of that.
1. I ggoled extensively before commenting, and found something like 50 stories, none of which mentioned the resolution, suggesting it was not in the original press release, and therefore that HP were looking at their shoes a bit on that aspect. Neither the HP web site nor the press release page mentioned the resolution, even to the point of using the meaningless "HD".
2. Yes, I think that in 2012 1080 vertical is rather feeble on a 23 inch screen. And definitely a major let-down in what is supposed to be a premium product. 'Designer'? ho hum.
3. No, I do believe it, unfortunately. The hardware people have been letting us down rather badly in this respect.
4. Yes. There is a long tradition of journalists asking awkward questions instead of paste-pot re-use of a press release, and I had sort of hoped that El Reg might live up to its subversive self.
I'm guessing your search success came after a few hundred people had actually asked HP and the results had come out.
