Can I improve the screen resolution of my iPad?

    The iPad only has an XGA screen (1024x768) wherein the MacBook is WXGA (1280x800). Since both displays operate at comparable pixel densitiy ~ 132 PPI for iPad, 113 PPI for the MacBook ~ it is only natural that pictures will look better on the MacBook.
