Anyone with Laptops/ Notebooks Higher Than 1080p Resolutions? QHD, UHD, 4K, Retina?


Anyone with Laptops/ Notebooks higher than 1080p resolutions? QHD, UHD, 4K, Retina?

I am curious if anyone else has any Laptops/ Notebooks that have one of these higher than 1080p Resolutions? I am guessing atleast someone here has a RETINA Mac Book Pro?

QHD / Retina
1440p
1600p

and/ or

UHD / 4K

Thoughts/ experiences?

I need to have someone check something on one of those screens and see how it scales out

Re: Anyone with Laptops/ Notebooks Higher Than 1080p Resolutions? QHD, UHD, 4K, Retin

I run an X61T & T61 both which have 1400 x 1050 LCDs. I am able to see a certain NUMBER of:
Folder Trees (1st pane)
E-mails List (2nd Pane)
E-mail Message Body (3rd Pane)

I was hoping that with a higher res screen 1080p and above.. e.g. UHD/ 4K etc like Surface Pro 3, I might be able to get more ROWS of the same stuff to show up in 1st & 2nd pane.
i.e. Kind of like how a high res screen allows for more Excel Rows & Columns to be visible without scrolling.

Do you think it might be possible for you to show more in 1st & 2nd pane if you change the scaling/ magnification for Native High resolution?

so basically you want to run Outlook without DPI scaling / Maybe using the normal "Disable display scaling on high DPI displays" option..

Did you get what I am asking of you ? Much appreciated Thanks in advance.

A Screenshot of the experiment would be great along with what Machine/ Screen Resolution you ran it

I really dunno what you looking for but obviously, the better the resolution, more rows/columns it'd accommodate

This is in full screen on my QHD 27" Benq BL2710PT:-



And this is how it looks on the LG G3 with a similar QHD resolution but 5.5" screen:-



And rotated & pinched (size reduced) on the LG G3:-



Hope it helps

I know that for Excel.

Can you do the same for Outlook? esp. Outlook 2010 (before the retina scaling came out). I want to see if it allows similarly LARGE number of Rows.

I had someone try it on their Surface Pro 3, but apparently its not showing.

I have a MacBook 13 Retina (2560x1440). From my experience, if you want more area, don't change DPI but increase the resolution. DPI keeps the clarity. Outlook 2010 probably is not suited for HiDPI screens and so it does not scale properly. Just to show how resolution affects the area I have posted some pics:

Scaling: 200%
Resolution: 2560x1440


Scaling: 200%
Resolution: 2880x1800


Scaling: 200%
Resolution: 3360x2100

Thanks I can see these, but I really dont want to see Excel I want to see OUTLOOK

I know most people will want SCALING on a High Res screen. I dont want scaling, I'd like to see how many ROWS of Emails I can see in Outlook

Can you please do the same for MS Outlook ?

Unfortunately I did not buy Outlook with Office 2013. But if you are not worried about scaling, the resolution increase should allow you to see more emails. And do not tick the "Disable display scaling on high DPI displays" option. It will just make the whole text blurry and big. But I can for a fact assure you that Outlook 2013 is designed for HiRes displays.
