Ah, the winds of change. Computer displays have been stuck in third gear for far too long, and worse yet, displays on notebooks took even took things a gear down, leaving technology enthusiasts in sheer bewilderment.
Forget simple laptops and notebooks, even some ultrabooks released last year came with the utterly unacceptable resolution of 1366 by 768. Sure it’s HD, and its widescreen, but where’s the innovation? Where’s the advancement?
Desktop displays too, have been stuck with 1920 by 1080 resolution for far too long, even large sized ones. It was almost as advancement in computer displays was stuck in time.
But times are changing — and the signs are there for all to see.
Call it declining sales, or anything else, but hardware companies like Acer and friends have started releasing new ultrabooks with display resolutions of 2560 by 1440 pixels. What this means is that a new generation of laptops with better displays (think full HD, 1920 by 1080 pixels) is fast approaching.
And sure enough, there are reports that this era will be upon us sooner rather than later.
Both HP and Toshiba are said to be developing regular laptops, but with high resolution displays. The companies will test the waters with small shipments first, and then scale as needed. Other hardware makers will soon have to follow to survive in this highly competitive market.
The first wave of such devices is slated to come before September.
