thats the thing ... what is the DPI of the screen ?  when it gets close to 300 dpi then it should start looking good w/o the sub pixel tricks.

i would love to start seeing desktop displays get the kind of dpi that the new ipad has.

the new ipad is about 260 ppi / dpi    most desktop displays are anywhere from 78 to 96 ppi

laptops tend to get 100 to 140
