Do we need 3K or 4K screens for 15" and smaller notebooks?

No, the point of 15 and smaller notebooks is to be cheap. If you want high quality, get a big laptop.

Not until they start putting better panels in those screens.

If they can do it without sacrificing anything


That's the thing... they can't. Battery life takes a hit the second you raise resolution, even for desktop purposes.

I think mobile and laptop development should focus more on battery optimization, or new battery technology before expanding further into other areas.


Preach on. My desktop's battery only lasts 5 minutes before I have to plug it in again.

I like where you went with that, although I'm *pretty* sure he meant "non-gaming purposes"... like word processing. heh

Couldn't hurt, but it's not needed.

Actually, higher res *can* cause some problems. Battery life, as explained above, can be shortened. Also, some apps don't scale properly, leaving you with the choice between "way the hell too small to read" or "scaled so the screen looks like my 2nd grader's scrapbook."

Ofc it can hurt.
Bigger res=you need more GPU power, even for normal usage. That means more heat, which requires better cooling.
And you end up with overpriced useless overheating crap that has 15" screen.

120fps 1080p > 4k 60fps.


No way in hell. Maybe for competitive fps games and you better make you are also getting 0 ping as well. 4k will be 100% better on a big OLED tv as well rather than a 28 inch ips monitor.

I don't think I quite understand... well, ANY of your reasoning. Why is 4k better on a large OLED as opposed to a 28" monitor?
