Can we stop repeating Apple's marketing bullshit and drop "Retina"?

What do you propose we use ?

Retina is actually a fairly useful term, it implies a certain pixel density at a certain point size.


By now using PPI should be the same as using GB for the RAM or GHz for the CPU (pre several cores, now it's a little bit more complex). 300 PPI is classified as not retina but you wouldn't notice it anyway, that's why we need to drop the retina classification.


"Let's stop that crap and call our Pentiums 'x86 thingies with vector thingies on top'!"
