  1. Dat' PPI
  2. Macbook Air has haswell...
  3. Actually, Macbook Air has neither Broadwell nor Haswell:

    "There is still no word on when we can expect Apple to update its MacBook line with Intel's Haswell processors. Intel introduced Haswell in June of this year, and we've seen numerous PC makers update their lines to include the new chips. Unfortunately, those looking to upgrade their MacBooks have been left waiting."
  4. I dont overly like Macs, not for any reason beyond never using them, and the leap from windows to mac seems huge at times, but damn their displays are amazing
  5. expl0itfinder.... Although I can sort of see how you can come to that conclusion based on the way the article was worded...

    The fact is the Mac Book Air does have Haswell based processors.

  6. why do you need that high of a DPI on a laptop, it'll be at least 18" from your face, not to mention the extra strain on the GPU to drive it and the battery to power it

  8. @wolley74 displays with high PPIs are extremely useful for graphics work and reading and gaming without having to rely on dubiously-implemented anti-aliasing methods. I wish my desktop monitor had a PPI like my iPhone does. I sit about 1.5' away from my monitor and can easily notice jaggies in games and programs. Unfortunately, it will be about a year before a 4K monitor is released in the size range that I desire (22" - 24"). Yes there is the IBM T220/T221, but those can't be driven at 60 Hz.
  9. They have all these small high resolution displays on portable devices yet why aren't there any desktop monitors that support 1920x1080 at less then 21.5 inches?

    Left PCs behind years ago along with PC gaming. Been rocking a monstrosity of a laptop ever since but I think it's time to go the MacBook air/tablet route now. As long as it can drive a decent sized external monitor that's the way I'm going. The last desktop left my household 4 years ago. We have tablets and laptops with a home server.


    I would like to see your "gaming" laptop beat my nvidia surround system...that cost me half the price ($1000)

    Just don't expect it do run games decently ... or run a big compile job ... or do pretty much any heavy task LOL
  12. So...2304 x 1440.

    I do wish that EVERY article stated that the mac won't actually RUN at the full 2304 x 1440 but instead a crazy high DPI thing going on.
  13. My mistake, not exactly a huge Mac guy. I mistook the information in the article. It makes it seem like they are not shipping with Haswell.
  14. Macbooks are nice, but I refuse to pay a large price just for the aesthetics. There are many laptops out there that are very, very nice looking... yet they could completely demolish the Macbook in terms of hardware.
  15. "Actually, Macbook Air has neither Broadwell nor Haswell"

    Actually, you're wrong. The MBA does have Haswell:

    Otherwise, where does that HD Graphics 5000 come from?
  16. Thank you, I see that now.
