First it appeard to be a hoax, the leaked video of the Google Pixel, but after a few days the leaders from Googleplex in Mountain View spoke, the Pixel is for real. And based on the specifications I would say this is a developers dream. A 3:2 aspect ratio, which means height, not width, a 2560x1700px 12.85-inch screen should offer a highly configurable screen with as much lines as your eyes can distinguish.
There is however a tiny problem, the computer runs ChromeOS, and as a developer who wants to run his own local servers, has his own database,… continue reading
While we are still waiting for other computer brands to come to par with Apple, I think it’s time to put some things straight about the so called Retina displays the new Macbook pro currently sports. On the technical sheet it states that is has a 2880 x 1800 display resolution. For starters this is not a lie. The panel does consist of all these 5.184 M pixels and that is great. Also the pixel density is 220 Pixels Per Inch. So far the facts.
But that is not the whole picture because when you buy a Macbook… continue reading
So here it is, the long awaited upgrade for laptop displays, Apple introduces a 16:10 2880×1800 15″ Macbook. Hurray! Expensive? Yes, it features an SSD and a less-glare display. Can’t wait to get my fingers on one of these babies. Finally a laptop on which you look at your code and have a tablet simulation running beside.
Well, slap me with a moldy turnip and color me flabbergasted! When doing some surfing today I discovered there is one other laptop that falls into our 1200+ category which is the Panasonic Toughbook 52. It’s even a 15.4″ laptop so that means it’s smaller than the Apple Macbook Pro. (But by no means lighter because of it’s toughness). It’s probably not the workhorse you’d expect for this price, but if 1200 pixels of height is what matters most, this is your one and last non Apple option as far as we know.
At the moment this site went live there was, to our knowledge, only one laptop available that has a display resolution of 1920×1200 (WUXGA) and that is Apple’s Macbook Pro. It’s the 17″ model, which is fine, but remember, in the days that 16:10 laptops were common, a lot of 15″ laptops had this resolution as well.
But let’s not complain and thank Apple for the last 1200+ laptop on the planet that is still produced.
