    Knowing Better did a good video on 4K, and while it's definitely possible to see the difference between 1080 and 4K, you definitely can't perceive the full difference, like you can between 720 and 1080 - somewhere between 1080 and 4K is a point where the screen has more pixels than your eyes have light receptors. Even under absolutely ideal conditions, once you go above that level of resolution, your eyes can no longer tell any difference.

    I hate the number pad, so much so that I refuse to own a laptop that has them. I can't think of a single usage for creators or gamers. If I was working with Excel, imputing in numbers all day, sure, it's a valuable accessory, even than though, I would rather plug in a full size mechanical keyboard.

    For a 3D designer like me(using C4D, Octane Render, Substance Painter and so on), this is a perfect laptop for me and other GPU render users. the 4K resolution is extremely useful for those software, now I use a 1080p 17 inch Razer Blade Pro, 1080p is really not enough. And for the most of the 3D designer, they prefer gaming laptop over the new studio edition.

    4K in a laptop is ridiculous. The screens are just too small. 1440p @144hz is the way to go for laptops, even in the future. It's just the perfect spot to be. If you're a producer and need more screen real estate, it's not like you'll be able to utilize 4K on the laptop screen anyways, it will be too hard to read fine text at full 4K.

    On another topic, I cannot fathom why the speakers on this thing were put where they were. Why doesn't anyone put speakers in an empty place that doesn't hinder anything else? What's up with the tiny claustrophobic keyboard?

    I prefer 1080p compared to 1440p to be honest. It makes no sense to take the performance hit in esport titles, especially nowadays with the pricing of GPUs that could actually drive 200+ frames at 1440p. Miss me with 60fps @ 1440p.

    I just bought new pc and monitor, and I went with 1440p / 144hz monitor. It just makes the most sense (for most gamers.)
    There are only two scenarios in which I would buy a 4k monitor:
    1.) I had a PC that was a MONSTER. (1200$ worth of GPUs.)
    2.) I only play slow moving games like LoL, Hearthstone, WoW, and and other games where I'd be totally happy at 60hz/FPS.
    Btw, If anyone reads this, I'd HIGHLY RECOMMEND my monitor. 32', 1440p, 144hz, 299$. AOC32.

    What are you talking about homeboy i can tell the difference between resolutions on my phone just fine and thats wayy smaller than a laptop screen. Saying screens are too small to tell or human eye isnt good enough to tell is getting old now. Your just blind and dumb as fuck

    Once I saw a movie on bluray, I couldn't go back to DVD ever again. It's sort of like the transition from VHS to DVD.
    1440p is (unfortunately) like the ugly duckling that nobody cares about.

    Problem is that other people are eating the 4K propaganda, having phones and laptops with 4K display are an oxymoron (at least for gaming)when combined with their relatively small batteries to keep a slim chasis.

    "Build quality is same as before..." => it will break i less than 6 m.

    I don't really understand how 4k somehow makes anymore sense for "real work". And I'm saying this as a professional 3D artist who owns the Razer Blade 15. I mean you even say I'm the video 17" inches is simply too small for that pixel density to be relevant. You're just gonna end up having to use extremely high scaling option to make UI's usable.
