Retina: ultrabooks to get better quality display technology
If you are looking to purchase a laptop you have no doubt discovered that the most common screen resolution utilized by the majority of models is 1366x768. This is because displays which use these resolutions are often the most mass produced, meaning they cost significantly less to buy. It is no surprise then, in this current economic climate, that manufacturers favour 13366x768 resolutions in order to reduce overall expenditure.
In recent years, there has been a significant rise in the number of customers desiring a higher standard resolution than the now commonplace, 1366x768. Only recently, Asus unveiled Zenbook Ultrabooks in both 11 and 13.3 inches, with 1080p Full HD resolutions. 9 new models in all are set to be released, 7 of which will be equipped with the improved 1080p Full HD resolution. Early reports suggest that these new displays are of great quality, possessing 350-nit brightness and 170 degree viewing angles. Whilst not available to purchase at present, Asus has plans to launch these new Zenbook Prime Ultrabook models this summer. Prices, in many instances, are yet to be confirmed.
