And why does Lenovo love it that much?
>no because it is the most optimal resolution in terms of dpi and battery life
So that is the reason why 5inch phones get 4K resolutions and 13inch laptops 1366x768?
I see one good thing and one bad thing there on the macbook. Looking at the ram, they might have had to increase thickness by maybe a millimeter or two in order to put a proper slot in.
However, Macs get /damn good/ battery life. Consider the entire back half of the case is stacked batteries. Less room taken up by other components = more room for power.
You'll notice no other MFGs do this. The lenovos/toshibas/etc of the world still just use massive block batteries that weigh more and have worse power specs. Sure, they're replaced easier, but by the time the battery has breathed its last, it'll be time for a machine upgrade anyways.
>8294400 pixels use less power than 1049088 pixels
Bar AMOLED every 4k panel has 8x more pixels than 1366x768. Which won't mean 8x more power usage but it's definitely not going to be less than a 15" 1366x768 panel.
people complaining about "things getting tooo tineeyyy" when confronted with high resolution displays are the worst.
From a consumer standpoint I like being able to replace the batteries in my laptop myself easily, but the truth of the matter is I have a Pentium II laptop (came with windows 98!) that still operates perfectly on the original battery. Those things last a long time with good enough care.
That laptop is like 5 years old and they never bothered updating it. They stopped manufacturing it a long time ago and are just selling it to retarded normies now for extra money.
So you are fucking retarded.
768 dots PER INCH? What the fuck?
tfw even shitty monitors have a higher DPI than retina display
You have access to the internet, fucking google it.
>Get an awful 1920x1080 laptop/tablet hybrid thing from work

>Feature is not openly mentioned anywhere, fucks up a lot of things in a lot of software I run and makes everything look like ass
It was easy enough to resolve but who the fuck thought that was a good solution to DPI scaling?
>having cables exposed
>this triggered by apple master race
I know what you mean, but you're wrong.
1366 x 768 is a resolution. DPI or PPI is not only determined by resolution, but by screen size.
A 768p screen that's 3 inches diagonally is 522.36 PPI
A 768p screen that's 20 inches diagonally is 78.35 PPI
The same amount of pixel stretched out over a larger area = less pixels per square inch
And DPI and PPI is different.
The old one looked better but the new one works better. The old one scaled everything up and broke a lot of software but the new one just blurs everything that isn't text and bolds everything that is text.
That being said it works a lot better when there are no decimal points in scaling so that it doesn't have to interpolate rasterized elements, IE 4K screen with 2x scaling (effective space of 1080p)

>"Let's custom design as much as possible so the machine fits together beautifully and every millimeter of internal space is put to good use. It'll cost us more, but it'll be worth it."
>Hardware team at Lenovo
>Alright guys, here's the basic dimensions of the case. Figure out the cheapest way to cram in these lowest-bidder off-the-shelf generic components. Use as many cables as you like, and oh yeah - if we have to cut back on battery volume to make it work just do it. Nobody needs that much battery life anyway!"
>And why does Lenovo love it that much?
They don't, they just cater to what's in demand. Normies who only use their laptops for browsing Facebook can't tell the difference between 1080p and 768p so why should any panel maker go out of their way and make any better screens? If a minority of people do want higher resolution screens, the companies charge them quite a bit.
In short, blame normal people
Well if people are paying more than double of other normal laptops, they damn well be better.
>they damn well be better.
>not serviceable at all
Not to mention you already lose warranty if you get to see these internals of your MBP. Bravo Apple :^)
>Hardware team at Apple
>OK, we're pretty much mainstream now. But quite a few of our customers are a bunch of computer illiterate media fags, a tradition hailing from the 80s. Therefore we gotta make the Mac totally weight symmetric in at least one axis. If the weight distribution is totally assymetric, then they will think that the computer is broken. It should also look really pretty if some of them acutally sees the inside.
>We also got a user base who just buys it for it to run the latest distro of Gentoo of, becuause they like freedom. Therefore we have to fill it with lots of autist useless stuff.
>Hardware team at Lenovo
I genuinely think that for a 15" screen it's still the most comfortable resolution.
Anything more makes the text smaller and a pain in the ass to read, or you have to use the upscaling function, so what's the point already.
It doesn't, though.
It fucks up a decent amount of stuff and you have to write a batch program to load on startup to go back and use win8 DPI scaling if you don't want random programs to start looking blurry as fuck.
My 13,3'' Acer notebook from 2010 has this resolution.
Higher resolution would make everything too small.
But Windows7 got some problems sometimes to display all the windows correctly, which means sometimes I cannot see everything.
>tfw clueless poorfag who fell for the meme and is now stuck with it
>We also got a user base who just buys it for it to run the latest distro of Gentoo of, becuause they like freedom
But that's wrong faggot. Gentoo devs refuse to call it Gentoo GNU/Linux and Gentoo also strives users torwards nonfree software.
>when will the demand for cheap panels ever end?
never. why would it? if you don't like it buy more expensive hardware. many people are with it if it means a lower price. 1366x768 is no worse than 1024x768 being everywhere. they're both perfectly useable.
now 1024x600 was a bad idea and basically unusable without UI tweaks.
All I see is that one can be easily serviced and the other can not.
>Not to mention you already lose warranty if you get to see these internals of your MBP. Bravo Apple :^)
Doesn't every manufacturer do this?
>bought a msi notebook for muh mobile performance
>fans and heatsink start to get clogged by dust within a year, temps rise by the week
>have to void my warranty just to prolong its lifetime
>same shit is seen on friends and family's normie laptops
Only the 11" version (incidentally, the only screen size where 1366x768 gives a somewhat acceptable DPI). The 13" version has always been 1440x900. That's still not my optimal resolution but I'll take it over 1366x768 any fucking day of the week.
if you never had a problem with the resolution then there's no reason why you should be upset now.
it's only a problem if you used a high resolution display before and can't get it out of your head how awesome it was.
It's a "compatibility" feature that is enabled by default for some reason. You can disable it, but some older apps UI may look fucked. I think you can specially enable it for those apps, or disable DPI scaling for them.
>implying i'm not on my glorious, better performing and cheaper stationary with 1680x1050 display
Why are you trying this hard to justify your poor purchase decisions?
>refusing to face reality
It's sad to watch honestly.
Because you payed far more than anyone should have when you chose to get that glowy apple. numb nuts
You're actively encouraging them to keep their shit as overpriced as it is.
That build quality is not worth the large increase in price, yet when tools like you buy their shit they don't have a reason to not inflate the price.
>a 20" WQXGA screen adds more stress to the GPU than a 40" WQXGA screen
Think about it anon, if you weren't encouraging them to inflate the price, and other people weren't encouraging them to inflate the price. Then the price wouldn't be inflated, and you might have saved yourself at the very least 5k dollarydoos, assuming i'm right about which computer it is.
And just maybe I too would buy apple products if the price wasn't as inflated as it is.
1080p panels are at the point where they're almost as cheap. Although, I assume you're right, in that OEM pricing is even cheaper. As for power savings, 1080 amoled is ridiculously efficient.
Never and /g/ will continue to defend it because they're bigger poor fags than /v/ and that's saying a lot. You see people on here going crazy for $200 laptops even though they could actually learn to budget money properly to buy something like a mac book or any proper laptop.
Not sure if it's true with their more recent models but my Dell n7110 17r is very service friendly.
I used to have a drinking problem and would drop it all the time and shit. I changed out the screen, power and USB port card and keyboard. I also added another 4Gig ram stick to bring it up to 8 and replaced the hdd with an ssd.
It's also easy to open up and clean the dust and shit out. It still my main machine I use it in a dual monitor type setup with the builtin screen and utilize the vga out with xubuntu.
Was expensive when I bought it but still holds up I can even play csgo on lowish settings.
Don't know what the general opinion of dell laptops are here but this was a great investment for me (it was expensive as fuck when I bought it) and I would buy dell again.
My previous laptop was an acer and I would not buy one of those again...
No it fucking doesn't. I have a 12" 1366x768 laptop and that resolution is fucking dogshit. Makes me want to claw my eyes out every time I have to program or read something on it.
1366x768 and every company that still uses it needs to die in a fire.
I just don't really even notice its weight or size because I can pick up things heavier than a cheetos bag without complaining.
I guess that doesn't make much sense to you, does it?
Enjoy your gimped specs and >muh portability and your retarded little chromebook, faggot.
>Enjoy your gimped specs and >muh portability and your retarded little chromebook, faggot.
Who said I need to compromise? Even if I wanted a 17" laptop I wouldn't get one with a dGPU and preferably an Atom
I'm using a 14 inch 1366x768 laptop and it's perfectly fine. 1080p would be nicer but whatever, it was cheap.
If you want 1080p you have to fucking pay for it. Stop being a poorfag and demanding better ship for cheaper.
I have changed the keyboard (my dog jumped on my lap and broke a few keys off my laptop) and replaced the battery to a bigger one. I'm currently waiting for my HDD caddy so I can replace the optical drive, which is hot-swappable. Others have replaced the screen too, to get a higher resolution, but I already have 1440x900 on a 14" screen so I haven't needed that.
It's possible to open it up (and I have) so much that you could replace the thermal paste. I have cleaned all the dust off from it, even though it has a pretty good fan design that doesn't suck in all the dust from the room.
I have replaced the HDD inside to an SSD and I could replace the RAM at any point. Without actually upgrading the processor or motherboard or GPU or something, how could a laptop be any more serviceable?
Apple users will never know this joy of a long lasting design. Extremely lucky ones can probably skip one or two generations before it completely shits itself.
1366x768 gives a pretty standard DPI for a 13" monitor. Compare the DPI with a typical desktop 22" 1920x1080 or 27" 2560x1440 monitor. Laptops are just bad with tiny screens, shitty keyboards, touchpads, et cetera.
>It's determined by both.
>DPI or PPI is not only determined by resolution, but by screen size.
>not only determined by resolution, but by screen size.
>not only determined by resolution
Holy fuck you're dense
It won't die as long as you autistics keep buying it
>hurr hurr look le megboog is so overpriced guise, I can get a processor that advertises the same frequency and a dedicated 940m graphics card for $1000 less!
>Hurr hurr guise I just bought a laptop but holy shit why do Laptop keyboards suck so much, and what the fuck is with the screen, it sucks and trackpads are so fucking unprecise, the battery only lasts for two hours and it's all cheap plastic! How do people even deal with this? Notebook users BTFO!
