1920 x 1080 has already proven its self the popular choice for screen resolutions, but that's only been due to two factors, performance and price, had everyone the money for 4K screens and the graphical horsepower required to generate such content, 1080 screens would be unpopular indeed, but with Apple having their retina displays across nearly all their high end tablets and Mac Books, not to mention their desktop solutions, the PC market has been far behind, bar expensive monitors from manufacturers such as Dell.
Now ASUS want in on the game and their next-gen ZenBook is set to have a 2880x1620 screen, which should look simply eye watering gorgeous! Especially once they pack that DPI into a 15.6" display, you'll never notice a jaggy edge ever again!
The new UX51 packs a mighty display and not just for a notebook, but for any computer full stop and this display needs some serious specifications to back it up and for around €2000, that is exactly what you'll be getting.
• 2.2GHz Core i7-3632QM Quad
• NVIDIA GT 650M GOU
• 8GB RAM
• 512GB SSD
Ok you can get it for €1700 with a 256GB SSD and there is no doubt in my mind that both numbers are crazy high and expensive, but I think Apple just got a little worried because suddenly there is a serious, Windows based alternative to the Notebook king that is Apple.
