Chad,

Source? Every source I find backs that 1920x1080 is the maximum for HD
1080p.

The 1920x2160 resolution is SPECIFICALLY for the passive 3d, which is not
specifically part of the 1080p standard, so I wasn't really wrong as that
is outside of the definition I defined.

4K is on the way, we'll see if it'll get adopted, I'm not willing to
speculate if it'll get full adoption or be a gimmick like 3d movies.

Still doesn't sell me on the idea that a screen of Retinas resolution is a
reason I should consider a Macbook Pro, although I will admit I'm not an
Apple fan like you.

Too many walled gardens.
