So this is why websites like to use 1/3 of my screen...

A 1080p monitor is $150. No reason not to have one.

The average consumer doesn't want to spend >$100 on a monitor, and >$300 on a computer.

TPU is optimized for 4K screens, Eyefinity, and 3DVision Surround, btw. ;)

The sad thing we buy because laptops do not have other option. I hate 1366x768 resolution.

Well, given that nearly every laptop sold in retail has a 720p screen with it, and most "normal people" buy laptops nowadays, and usually in retail, I can't really say it's surprising. Outside of business, art, and gaming, higher resolutions aren't exactly as much of a push. Especially for budget buyers.

So eh, not surprised. Plus smartphones are starting to have 720p screens too. With any device sub-4.8" having a retina display @ 720p, other than for marketing it would be a waste of processor resources for the most part to push past that resolution, so 720p may remain a norm for a while.

Actually there is.

A 1280x1024 or a 1366x768 screens can be powered by mid-high end graphic card for up to 200 EUR and it will last for literally years and you can play games with max possible settings no problem.

With 1920x1080 screen, you need a 300+ EUR card and you might already have problems in newer games which will have lower fps already. Yes, even 1080p will eventually get to the point of the above two resolutions, but it will take some more time.

I'm telling you this from my personal experience. I have a 1280x1024 screen and most will argue that it's too low res and too old. But i like it. Size doesn't bother me, but it just works and i can play EVERYTHING with my HD6950 at max possible settings. Most ppl were scared with Far Cry, Crysis series and latest Battlefield 3. I wasn't. I knew it would run easily with Ultra settings. And it did. With this screen i can simply watch everyone rushing for HD7970 and GTX 680 and just well, laugh. And i'll see if there will even be any need for HD8970 and GTX 780...

So, the first rule of cheap gaming, have a moderate resolution screen and you'll get through some high quality gaming much much cheaper. At the moment this resolution is 1366x769 and 1280x1024. Wide and boxed format, whatever you prefer. The biggest problem is they all rush for cheap 1080p screens and then complain how their games are slow...

I'm on an 11.6" 1366x768 screen and think it's perfect. There's no way I'm getting a bigger laptop without at least 1600x900 like the Zenbook.

I second this. With my aging PC, low res is more preferably.

I spent a decade in 1280x1024...then I jumped to 1680x1050...oh it is such heaven!

If you must, you must, but you don't know the glory of high res till you've really used it and seen the difference. Heck mine isn't even high anymore! One of these days I'll shift to 1080 but for now, I'm content.

Wow... talk about stragglers...
I'm running 2048x1152 + 1920x1200 and I feel like I always run out of space...
And no, I don't have a super powerful graphics card, but that "old" 6870 plays all the games I play just fine at 2048x1152...

Oh NOOOOOESSSS!!! This is TERRIBLE news!

There are so many websites currently optimised for width at 1024, which means my monitor can display two browser windows side by side perfectly.

Don't change this, developers. Please don't do it!

What glory? Only difference between my and your image is the physical size in inches diagonally. With all the horsepower to spare from the gfx card, i can use 4x FSAA easily, but most of the time i use even higher values. I have 16x AF enabled all the time by default for like ages. So the jaggies are total history and i see just a smooth detailed image.

Are you kidding me?

You wouldn't have any problems playing games at 1920x1080 , C'mon! what are still doing with a 4:3 monitor?
You actually loosing a lots of the extras games visual not to have it played in widescreen , i would never go back to 4:3 monitor as far as games & movies are concerned

With my system i can play Warhead full quality @ 1920x1080 & Crysis 2 a little less they both do about 30f/s which is fine by me but worst case scenario i could always choose a lower resolution even if not native res. it will still look great in games

Anyhow having a nice system like your it's shame not to have a better monitor to go with it...:ohwell:

You wouldn't have any problems playing games at 1920x1080 , C'mon! what are still doing with a 4:3 monitor?
You actually loosing a lots of the extras games visual not to have it played in widescreen , i would never go back to 4:3 monitor as far as games & movies are concerned

With my system i can play Warhead full quality @ 1920x1080 & Crysis 2 a little less they both do about 30f/s which is fine by me but worst case scenario i could always choose a lower resolution even if not native res. it will still look great in games

Anyhow having a nice system like your it's shame not to have a better monitor to go with it...:ohwell:
