XPS 17 FHD or UHD

Hi,

Coming from a Macbook Pro with 2880 x 1800 resolution.  I don’t need a touch screen but am concerned I may be disappointed with the FHD display.  Any thoughts from those with experience with the FHD display would be appreciated.

Thank you, John Marrocco

Re: XPS 17 FHD or UHD

Part of the answer depends on the applications you'll be running; not all will scale well on a QHD screen.  Verify that your applications will run well on QHD. The other issue is, will you be able to live with a much shorter battery runtime?  Pumping the data required by a 17" screen, plus the added power required by the screen itself, will very drastically shorten the runtime of the battery (you will see nowhere near the runtime on a Windows QHD system that you did on a Retina Macbook, for a number of reasons, not all of which are completely screen-related).

I guess the only way to tell if the programs will run properly scaled is to run them on that screen.

Thanks for the help. appreciated.
