What I'd like to see is higher /VISIBILITY/, irrespective of the 
resolution. Speaking for those of us who are at a certain age where the 
Cntl-plus key combination is a familiar support, I'd like to have a 
screen that I can see without changing glasses, pulling down the window 
shades, and/or resorting to the uglier-than-sin "high contrast" color 

As a /start/, let's demand that /all/ monitors rotate a full 90 degrees: 
the first "word processors" made by An Wang came that way, and I've 
always been amazed that others didn't have a similar attack of common 
sense. In addition, the supports for "High Definition" TV set could 
benefit from similar capabilities, so that those who are called out of 
bed at 3:17 AM to tend to a ailing server would be able to do so without 
having to find their eyeglasses at the same time they're looking for an 
ice pack and a band-aid. Don't ask me how I know.
