Look up the machine you have now on the chart. Look at the right most column and find the dots per inch. Then look up another resolution that you might be considering and compare.

The values that are circled in red are resolutions higher than 144 dots per inch. Probably the borderline beyond which most of us cannot do prolonged immersive work.
