The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 is a direct rival to the HP ENVY 15 we just talked about. This display is also not IPS, just like the HP machine. Colours look equally good, but the top line brightness level is a tad lower as well. But, one happy change over the previous generation is that this inspiron display is much less reflective. Handles fast moving scenes in movies very well, and the slightly better viewing angles make a lot of difference
Finally, we see a 1080p display on a mainstream laptop. Hopefully, this will become a trend, a welcome trend in the coming times. It does hit most of the right chords - it's adequately bright, less reflective than HP’s displays of old and offers much improved viewing angles. However, this is not an IPS display, and is no match for one in terms of colour richness and accuracy. However, if that isn’t your primary concern, the ENVY 15’s 15.6-inch display does well in terms of text rendering and handling most video content
The 13.3-inch MacBook Pro Retina offers a native resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels. The Haswell updated versions have slightly different specs than earlier. The entry level version, priced at Rs 99,900, now offers 4GB RAM instead of 8GB. The Retina displays on the MacBook Pro machines are, by far, the best displays on notebooks, in terms of colour accuracy. Best for anyone who will use this screen for photo or video editing
Of the two versions, the bigger 15-inch MacBook Pro Retina's IPS display offers a native resolution of 2880 x 1800 pixels. This is the highest available in any notebook at the moment. The MBPr 15 range starts at Rs 1,49,900 for the Haswell powered Core i7 clocking at 2.0GHz, while the bumped up specs with the Core i7 clocking at 2.3GHz and the Nvidia GeForce GT750M costs Rs 1,99,900.
The 12.5-inch display size is never going to appeal to everyone, but for those who are comfortable with a smaller screen than most conventional notebooks offer, the XPS 12 is an impressive package. The Full HD display is extremely good in terms of colour reproduction, and the text is very crisp and easily readable. Flip it around in the hinge, and close it over the keyboard, and you have a sort of a tablet!
This is an extremely unique machine, with not one but two 13.3-inch Full HD displays. One is where the traditional screen is, and the second is where you would expect the lid to be. The secondary display is a touchscreen as well, and the glass layer on top makes colours look a lot richer. Buy this, because no other laptop or ultrabook will attract as much attention.
The successor to the IdeaPag Y500, the Y510p gets a 15.6-inch screen has the Full HD resolution. Considering the fact that Lenovo is positioning this machine as a gaming laptop, complete with the red backlit keyboard, this should go a long way in appealing to the gamers. Gets the Intel Core i7-4700M processor, with up to 16GB of RAM and the Nvidia GeForce GT750M graphics.
Sony has done a fantastic job with the new VAIO FIT 15 series of notebooks. They start at a rather affordable Rs 30k price point, but go up to Rs 70,000 almost. The version we talk about here costs around Rs 68k, and the highlight is the 15.5-inch IPS Full HD display. Sony, whenever it does fit 1080p screens on notebooks, always does a fantastic job with the panel quality. A good alternative to the MacBook Pro Retina, at least in terms of colour accuracy
You want a gaming machine, but don't want the elder brother? The Alienware 14 is what would interest you. Full HD screen, Core i7-4700MQ processor, 8GB RAM and the Nvidia GeForce GTX 765M GPU - the gamers would be impressed by this package. Costs just a bit more than Rs 1,20,000
This is the real deal. The 17-inch 1080p screen would be a delight, for gaming or for multimedia comsumption. The machine gets the Intel Core i7-4800MQ processor, 16GB RAM and the Nvidia GeForce GTX 770M GPU. With a price tag of Rs 1,88,000 that the Alienware 17 flaunts, this sort of spec sheet is just the start. The performance, is mind-boggling
