    What year is this again? Asus is looking better and better...

    My thoughts exactly - lousy resolution! Asus seems to finally have understood that a nice display is great - Acer seems to have upgraded their new offerings as well. Based on the displays alone, I would avoid these. Reply

    What is it with everyone and hi-res. Sure it's cool when the display is big but on 13" it's just a bad idea. You can't make good use of the computer if you have to hold a magnifying glass in one hand. You could lower the display res but then why did you overpay. What you should want from a screen if good viewing angles and visibility is strong sun light. Reply

    At least give us a dang choice.... Also, with tablets going hi-res, web sites are eventually going to be made for higher res. Reply

    What is it with any frugal retard who thinks 1600x900 is "hi-res" (sic!)...?

    The fact that you stuck with that PoS 1366x768 on your shitty el cheapo 2008 laptop does not mean the world has stopped and should remain there, only to give you cheaper and cheaper (and shittier and shittier) replacement units, you stupid cheap fuck.

    My guess is that Windows 8 supports high DPI displays far better than Windows 7 does, so a full HD display with Windows 7 will have some very tiny text. Laptops shipping with windows 8 will fare better with a full HD display. Reply

    1366x768 is a complete joke, even on a 13" screen. Hell, my 10.1" tablet is higher DPI, and even IT looks like crap! Power users and software developers like myself need higher resolution displays, because software does not scale up/down very well. We aren't at the point of having resolution-independent software yet, despite attempts from Microsoft to make a compatible UI framework (Windows Presentation Foundation / WPF).

    When will hardware manufacturers GET WITH THE TIMES? This is friggin' 2012!

    I really would like to buy a Lenovo unit, but I can't justify throwing away more money on something that won't satisfy me. I tried it with a Samsung Series 5 notebook, and was displeased with the result. Initially I thought I would be OK with it.

    Solution: do not buy fuckin Lenovo. Last year I was considering their stuff, now I can clearly say all of them a re junk when it comes to screen and won't be even looking at them. Reply

    Depends on the model. At the ideapad level, lenovo is really relying more on design, it seems like. I would grab one of these U series ultrabooks in a flash if they had better specs and battery life (imho these are the nicest looking laptops on the market).
    However, at the thinkpad level, things flip and specs improve a lot. Suddenly you get the magnesium chassis, ips screens, great keyboards and awesome battery life (even with the W520). However, these aren't cheap.

    I literally stopped reading the article here: "16:9 768p (1366x768)"

    It's 2012 - GFY, Lenovo.
