dpi:Dots Per Inch.  A measure of scanner, screen, and printing resolution.  The more dots per inch, the more detail a device can process for a given area of page or display.  On the other hand, the more dots per inch, the higher the demands on machine storage and processing (files get large and processing slows down).
