Now that Toshiba, a PC manufacturer, is creating 4K displays people should stop saying the Retina Display is useless at 15 inches.

We have waited so long for higher resolution screens. But we seem to have jumped 2 steps at once, completely missing out 1440y and 1600y in the mainstream markets. I'd like a 1440y and 1600y in a 12-13". 4K is great, but 15-16" isnt really a laptop anymore, but a transportable.

Good luck running your 3rd party and Java/Flash based apps on that monitor size. ;)
Cheers.

Sure, I can see the practical benefit of having a laptop that can output a UHD signal to a much larger external UHD display, but what benefit to the user does a UHD 15.6" display offer over a 15.6" Full HD display?

There were monitors higher than FHD as far back as the early 2000s (1920x1200, anyone)? And the Apple Retina displays on the Macbook Pro models. You get sharper text and can work with larger image files fullscreen.

An unbiased test is in order. Say, a group of people with excellent eyesight to each pick out the UHD 15.6" laptops from the FHD ones. The laptops would of course be identical in every other respect. My skepticism will vanish if they succeed.

I'm sure 2560 compared to 1920 is easily noticeable on 15.6", but 4k vs 2560? I doubt it. 4k to 1920 should be easy unless you're blind.
