Actually it's a marketing term. To a majority of people 300PPI means nothing but if you say something like "retina" display then most people would know what it's meant to be like.

I'm at the point where I don't really care what's going to be in the next lineup (AMD or Nvidia graphics, Hi-DPI display or not, USB 3.0 or not, a complete redesign with removal of the optical drive or not) I really need to "retire" this MacBook and get a new 15" or 17". I just don't want the whole entire lineup to be as thin as the MBA as it'll severely limit what's going into it. I don't want it all to be Intel graphics as it'll officially mean the "Pro" moniker is worthless. Keep the 15" and the 17" with discrete graphics and a mid-high range quad-core processor and I'll be happy with whatever is going to happen to it.

I tried editing a video on my MacBook using Premiere CS5 and it took me twice as long to do it as it would on my desktop because it took so long to render and load everything and the 1280x800 screen is a very cramped work area.

My old MacBook at least won't be collecting dust as I'll pass it onto my mom, who'll only use it for browsing the net and paying bills. Just put a clean copy of Lion on it, put whatever programs she needs on it and hand it off to her. I know she had my dad's old iPad, but she asks for my laptop every once in a while cause the iPad can't work on whatever she was doing.
