Now, combine that with a little box that stores and 'upreses' each image before sending it to the monitor ... (that may not exist yet, but I'm pretty sure it can be done).
Good point. They do seem to have been making the "everything is 1080p" transition in the HDTV space this past year. That said, computer monitors will soon (already have in some cases) take the next step which is to push the pixel density up so you achieve 144 and higher pixel per inch. I'll wager the TVs will level out at 1080p for a while.

I also made the classic mistake of expressing things as if what happens in the US is what's happening across the world (I should know better).
