17.3" QHD (2560x1440) is finally available!

#1 Post by pianowizard » Tue Aug 20, 2019 9:52 am

I recently learned that the latest Alienware 17 laptop has a 17.3" 2560x1440 option, corresponding to 169.8 DPI:

I still prefer the LG Gram 17's 17.0" 2560x1600, whose 177.6 DPI is also low enough that I wouldn't need scaling, but both are excellent resolutions for productivity on a laptop.

For 3840x2160 to work comfortably at the default scaling, I would want the screen to be at least 24" (183.6 DPI).
HP Pavilion x2 12 (Core M3-6Y30, 3.14lb); Microsoft Surface 3 (Atom x7-Z8700, 2.00lb)
Dell OptiPlex 5040 SFF (Core i5-6600); HP 8300 Elite tower (Core i7-3770)
