With upcoming Nexus 10 tablet at 300ppi apple no longer has a single panel that is not bested by competition. Wake up from apple propaganda and start paying attention to the actual facts.
I will give you another example, you may know that the current iMac 27" monitor is using an IPS screen of 2560-by-1440 resolution and is sold for over $1500.
There are a few monitors that use the same 27" 2560-by-1440 resolution, I have one of them the Dell U2711 which when I purchased it was about $1200. You can now find that same monitor going on sale for $999.
Now through ebay you can find certain Chinese sellers selling a 27" 2560-by-1440 resolution monitor between $299 to $499. Why is that? They are using A- grade monitors that Apple has rejected due to not meeting certain standards set by Apple.
If you decide to purchase these $299 monitors, you may get one with backlight bleed, dead pixels, uneven lighting, no OSD, etc.
However, I found out after my previous comment I made that Apple IS NOW the one that is using a lower standard IPS. As mention by this review:
So in essence the iPad mini is the inferior IPS display compared to the Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire HD.
