Next gen ultrabooks to feature 1080p screens

Written by Fudzilla staff



Something to justify the high price tag


Acer and Asus have reportedly contracted panel makers AU Optronics and CMI to come up with new ultrathin 1080p panels for next generation ultrabooks.

The move seems to make a lot of sense, since the majority of current ultrabooks offer 1366x768 screens, which are now found even on the cheapest laptops and even 11.6-inch netbooks. In addition, tablet makers are also looking at high res screens and Apple’s next generation iPad is said to feature a 2048x1536 retina display. Android tablet vendors will also start offering higher resolution screens in 2012.

However, ultrabooks are not tablets and we are a bit concerned that they won’t be able to make good use of the extra resolution thanks to OS limitations and ergonomics issues. Right now, we are used to 1080p on 22- to 26-inch desktop panels and desktop replacement notebooks. Having 1080p on 11.6- or 13.3-inch displays in Windows 7 does not sound too practical due to the basic layout of the user interface and the basic design of many applications, but Windows 8 should be a lot better in this respect.

I demand 16:10 with 1920x1200 !

16:9 is a joke for productivity.

To be fair so is 16*10.

5*4 FTW! :)

And yes, still using my two 1280*1024 displays I got in 2006 as nothing better has come along since.

Your comments are exactly what I wanted to say. 1080p is for telly. May be for tablet. But computer (especially desktop one) must be 8:5 (1920x1200; 1680x1050).
I am not buying 1920x1080, I do not want to support this madness. And yeah, nowadays it is VERY difficult to find non-16:9 screen!
