[Verge] Chromebook Pixel hands-on video and impressions - Page 6

post #51 of 80
I don't want to sound like a hater, but I, quite frankly, see no redeeming qualities of this laptop...besides maybe the touch screen, which isn't as important anyway.

Why someone would want to spend $1300 on this is something I cannot imagine.

This is an absolute joke. I was kind of excited when I first saw the leaked video of this, but now...

so why do you own a 13" rmbp then?

sure the difference isn't massive, but it is noticeable. at 1080p on 15" display, i still get blurry text in comparison to my retina. by your logic, people shouldn't notice the difference between 480p and 720p smartphones as well

I had a choice; 1280x800 vs. 2560x1600.
What I'm saying is, people shouldn't notice a difference between 720p and 1080p on a 4" screen.

define blury text on a 1:1 pixel mapped LCD display?


blury is for analogue or not running native resolution

it isnt about the resolution (that u can change)
it about PPI for the visuals (that u cannot change)

What I'm saying is, people shouldn't notice a difference between 720p and 1080p on a 4" screen.

sure but there is a different between a jump from ~100ppi to ~200ppi and ~300 to ~400. i mean i can technically still see pixels on my laptop if i move my eyes close enough. whereas with a 720p phone, no matter how close i put it to my face i won't see pixels. if you don't notice pixelation on a 1080p display, maybe you just have old eyes. when i showed my parents my laptop, they couldn't tell the difference

the bluriness comes from cleartype (and it's equivalents). if i turn cleartype off, it just looks pixelated.
