What the fuck is with these people?
I don’t fucking care if I have an option for "
12.1", 14.1", 15" or 14.1" and 15.4" widescreen" just tell me what fucking laptop has 1200 lines of resolution on the front fucking page, jesus. So as far as I can tell only T61p does WUXGA and I had to click on every single damn model to find this out.
I still don’t know which laptops have which resolutions as options. My only guess is that Latitude D830 is the only latitude that supports 1200 lines, and only in widescreen. The only reason I found it is based on a wild ass guess that you wouldn’t put a 256MB graphics card into a business laptop if you couldn’t use some lame excuse to justify it. I can narrow down laptop selection by screen size in inches, weight, price and graphics chipset? Also, I found the luminance information that pops up everywhere greatly enlightening, “14.1 inch 500 nit Outdoor-viewable LCD Panel” just sells it to me :rolleyes: … that is until I find the fine print buried in the tech specs that says “14.1"WXGA (1280 x 800 resolution)”.
I wouldn’t be posting resolution on the front page either if after checking about 20 models I did not find a single one exceeding 900 lines that wasn’t big enough to have its own orbit.
You have all the information in your product matrix. Good job. If only you offered a normal resolution in a laptop that was less than 7.5lbs and 17", we’d be set.
On your store page for your MacBook Pro you clearly state that the 15" ones are “1440 x 900” and the 17" one is “1680 x 1050 pixels”. Unfortunately those are a little big for my needs. On your store page for your 13" MacBook it does not state the resolution anywhere, and my only reasonable conclusion is that instead of a display I get a 13" LED with the effective monochrome resolution of 1x1. I simply cannot justify spending $1100 to get a 1x1 monochrome laptop.
I have a choice to narrow down my selection by brand, operating system, price, or display size in inches. Choosing display size in inches, I can narrow it down by brand, CPU speed, CPU brand. It seems that I either have to delve into the product description hoping the resolution is mentioned or sacrifice a small virgin rodent in a sacred ceremony to get this information.
Thank you for finally adding resolution to your “Advanced Search”. I really appreciate it. It still not part of your guided search, and I’m completely befuddled why would anybody rather narrow it down by specific CPU type over resolution, but you have a marketing department, you deal with it.
This same story applies to LCD monitors as well. Overall, I’m getting more and more mystified by the LCD situation. Every time I get a new laptop or desktop it has an order of magnitude faster hardware, an order of magnitude slower software (you know, so my user experience stays consistent) and a slightly worse monitor. When my 2048x1536 Trinitron CRT died I had to settle for a 1600x1200 LCD with bigger viewable area. Back then I at least had an option of getting a 3840x2400 22" LCD if I had $8000 to burn on a screen – now I don’t even have that option. The last fucking thing I want is even bigger pixels, jesus.
