3200x1800 resolution laptop?

#1rumble_bellyPosted 10/24/2013 2:40:12 PM
I just discovered that a few companies like Samsung and Dell are releasing 3200x1800 resolution laptops. Does anyone have one? Are they any good? I am really wondering if text is really small at that resolution and hard to see unless you sit very close to the screen.

You should be more amazed at all the pix3lz!!!!

I expect text to be very small though at the res and screen size, you can just upscale but it will look nice.

The Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro is available for purchase. I haven't seen any proper reviews of it yet, but look for one.

I think the main problem with these laptops is that most Windows programs still don't scale well. Windows 8.1 is better than any other version of Windows so far but it is still far from perfect. I know because I've used Windows 8.1 on my Macbook and the default scaling is a good size but fonts in many programs are still very blurry. Microsoft can't fix everything either as many of the programs need to be updated by the developers themselves.

Yeah the scaling of windows in general is pretty bad, that's one thing MS can learn from Apple

Got my wife a Acer Aspire S7, 1080p on a 13" screen. Used it for a short while and we could not stand it, now she's rocking a rMBP 13"

If Windows scaling is bad, then how does the Surface tablet handle it? Its 1080p on a 10" screen, so that's pretty small too.

Windows itself doesn't scale that bad, but a lot of third-party apps that run on Windows could do better.
The Surface Pro just has its DPI setting set to 150% by default.
