...someone moaning about the screen resolutions/ratio in 3, 2, 1...
Acer has been busy at the CeBit trade show this week, with announcements of a fresh 15in Ultrabook and a range of slimline notebooks. The Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3 packs a 15in display with the latest Intel Core processor and a dedicated Nvidia GeForce GT640M graphics chip. The latter ending sole reliance on Intel's …
Frankly, IMHO, 1600x900 is just about acceptable at 11"-13", but at 17", it's pathetic.
One of the reasons I am still using my (now-ancient) Acer Ferrari 4005 (A64, 15" 1680x1050 matt display) is that I can't find a decent replacement (ie resolution as good or better, with a modern quad-core CPU and sensible RAM) at a sane price.
About the only laptop that actually moves the spec forward over my Ferrari would be a high-end MacBook Pro, but those are stupid money.
Well guys, I have to say I'm impressed. None of the usual frothing at the mouth, ALL CAPS, rocking backwards and forwards rants that are the norm for any mention of screen res/ratio, but reasoned and polite responses... and no downvotes in sight (so far at least!). That's got to be a first on El Reg!
Upvotes and virtual beers for all of you! :)
Hmmm.... how many do I own... none.
Apple will have discreet graphics in there new 15" MacBook Air this spring.
I bet this one won't beat Apple on price.
PS - To be an UltraBook it should have an SSD. The difference in speed is like night and day. I'll never have a boot HD again. SSD from here on out. I could never go back. It's like jumping into a pool of tar.
