There is no question of testing. As dpi = pixels per inch then I can see
resolution is 4800 ppi by 9600 ppi. Firstly, why the two numbers, I
would have thought resolution needed only one number and secondly, if
this sort of resolution is readily available why does the author of the
book take pains to imply that 600 ppi is something important?
