Laptop Resolution Disappointment - Episode 159

Sunday Jan 28, 2018 (00:17:24)


This week, Avram Piltch discusses one of the most disappointing trends in laptops: screen resolution. It's hard to believe that in 2018, as televisions are moving to UHD and screens are full HD or better, laptop screens are still shipping with 1366x768 resolution. It's not just a small number, either. 51% of business notebooks sold in 2017 were below full HD. In consumer laptops, the numbers are worse: over 60% of laptops sold were below full HD. This is a problem whose solution came a decade ago, so manufacturers should stop offering these low-end screens.
