Re: 4K movies will be over 100 GB each!
said by Guspaz:Retina resolution is defined as the number of pixels per arcsecond across your field of view. A 10" iPad at 1' from your eyes has the same angular resolution as a 30" 1600p display at 3' which makes them technically indistinguishable assuming similar panel quality and that you aren't near/far-sighted which would naturally give an unfair bias toward one situation over the other.
I can tell you that a 1440p 27" monitor is nowhere near "retina" levels. The jaggies were strong with this one.
Also, aliasing is not so much about the eyes' resolution as it is about the brain being wired to detect unnatural/unexpected irregularities. I cannot really see individual pixels along polygon edges at my normal sitting distance but I do notice the distracting shimmering from unblended edges - and these would remain noticeable well beyond Apple's retina resolution on slow moving edges.
