Is high pixel density good for touch?

two unrelated parameters hmm.gif
pixel is from the screen panel. touch is from the capacitive sensors.

Obviously if icons / objects become very small, it become challenging for fingers to touch / select it, but nobody (hopefully) will display 3200x1800 on a 15" screen laugh.gif

then wait for MBP Retina to refresh to Haswell smile.gif (should have better idea after 22 Oct)

MacBookPro 15" (Retina Display), i7-3610QM + Nvidia GT650M + 256GB SSD + (2880x1800)@RM6799[2.02kg], 8GB, backlit keyboard, Mac OSX

Don't think new MBP Retina will get lower price than current one laugh.gif

I don't like it that we don't have a non-touchscreen variant laugh.gif
And at that price it should be powered by full SSDs (at least a 256GB one) sad.gif

Although it does look very classy and nicely designed... for that price range, I think its more worth it to invest money in the Illegear RU-14 Pro with IPS FullHD screen, though its not exactly 15" tongue.gif

Or like what the others have mentioned, MBP 15 or perhaps MBA 15 (if there is one laugh.gif) will be better picks? hmm.gif

in the future, it is better to get something to block the lid if you want to touch so the hinge wont loosen.

Oh man sweat.gif

The "increase in sales of touchscreen models" is because we don't have much alternatives since they already come with it as stock what laugh.gif
Luckily I'm not really into ultrabooks haha laugh.gif

This is not an Ultrabook, because it's not ULV.

If it were an Ultrabook it would have more hours of battery.

Touch is maybe just because of Windows 8/8.1 - but I haven't used 8/8.1 before, not sure how good.

i think they should give a name to high performance ultrabook like laptops.

normally, i would call the XPS 15 ultrabook sized.

Superb overpriced laptop IMO with a HDD =.= Should at least give a 128gb SSD variation at such price

Huh is that true? But then can't manufacturers just take off the "ultrabook" branding and continue using ULV processor like apple?

It's a one of a kind ridiculous product for that price.

RMBP comes with 256gb ssd so that immediately eliminates rm500-600 price difference. You get 16:10 which is a godsend, MacOS, probably better keyboard+touchpad, design is subjective but most people will definitely opt apple, almost definitely better battery life and most importantly better OS pixel scaling implementation

Youd have to be an idiot to purchase this instead.

This is pointless if you can only buy in Malaysia - the XPS 15 is pretty crap. If not, it's actually quite decent if you already had the ability to shop for 15" Retina MBPs.

Malaysia doesn't have the high end version of the XPS 15. The high end version easily beats the cheaper Retina by both specs and price, and the more expensive Retina by price (specs are close). Of course there isn't a Malaysian price to compare with, so we can take the tax-free discounted Australian price vs the Australian prices of the Retina MBP or the Malaysian prices of the same. Because Australian prices are close (without tax, and with discounts).

The high end version claims to have 11 hours battery vs only 7 hours for Retina (http://store.apple.com/my/buy-mac/macbook-pro).

512GB mSATA SSD vs 256 or 512.

2GB DDR5 GT 750M vs 1GB DDR5 GT 650M (not much difference).

3200x1800 IGZO display vs Retina (big difference according to some people).

2.2 GHz vs 2.4 or 2.7 GHz quad core (Haswell for Dell).

Almost the same weight.

Now for the prices. Apple's will set you back RM6799 & RM8699. In Australia it's $2499 & $3199 ($2279 & $2979 with discount, $2072 & $2708 without tax, i.e. RM6527 & RM8530).

Dell's high end version is $2599, cut to $2209 after discount, and $2008 without tax, i.e. RM6326.

Much better specs than the cheaper Apple, slightly better specs but more than RM2000 cheaper than the expensive Apple.

Of course at RM4999 the specs aren't great, and RM6299 doesn't compete with the cheaper Apple. But then, this is the Malaysian market.

Ultrabooks have to be ULV.

This thing is full voltage. Even though it weighs quite little for its size, and is thin like most ultrabooks.

The difference is in the battery. Full voltage battery is shit, ULV can go on for hours like an Apple Macbook.

Most ultrabooks may weight around 1.3-1.4 Kg, and Samsung has a 15" Ultrabook that weighs very little. So you can get big screens and it doesn't have to weigh 2kg or more.

The only impressive thing is that this is full-powered, those very light computers aren't. Extra weight comes from heat management, larger battery, thicker case etc.
