“Retina screens are just a marketing concept, but there exists real science behind the nomenclature. It has to do with how your eye works and how you use your specific device. You hold a phone closer than a tablet, and you’ll probably hold a tablet closer to you than you would your laptop.” —J.R. Nelson

Today’s WhatIs.com Word of the Day is Retina display,a backlit LCD (liquid crystal display) that provides resolution levels of 220 to 326 pixels per inch.

By the way, if you’re curious about what our definition for laptop looks like in Serbo-Croatian, Jovana Milutinovich recently posted a translation. Jovana is currently studing Computer Science at the University of Belgrade,Serbia. We wish her the best of luck in her studies!
