There’s just something about a high resolution screen that gets me giddy. Maybe it was the years being stuck with plain old WXGA, or *gasp* XGA resolution, but a ton of pixels on a smaller screen just gives my geek-senses a tingle. We are actually seeing a shift in the market, largely thanks to Apple, towards high quality, high resolution displays.
Of course, the average consumer doesn’t know what a high-res screen is, but they do know what a Retina Display is. The more tech savvy among us have been keen to reap the benefits of more pixels for decades, but it’s a hard sell to someone who uses a computer like a refrigerator or microwave.
Now that tech is becoming portable, affordable, and powerful enough to be used for business and pleasure pretty much anywhere, it’s not such a stretch for consumers to spring for the better display or pay more for a premium design.
While Dell’s new Vostro 3560 laptop may not be as sexy as an iPhone, the tech behind it is quite exciting as well. That Full HD 1080p screen is a good start, and being 15.6-inches it takes full advantage of the 1920×1080 resolution for both work and pleasure (1080p Blu-ray playback).
Dell’s laptop also has Intel’s newest 3rd generation processors, in this case the powerful quad-core Core i7-3612QM processor. You also get 1GB AMD Radeon HD 7670M graphics and a sexy, but still practical, backlit keyboard.
We don’t normally see much in the way of discounts on brand new systems, especially small business-class machines like this, so the $290 savings on this Vostro 3560 is quite impressive. Dell also has them in stock to ship the next business day, so you don’t have to wait for it to be shipped from overseas.
