New Model (W230ST refresh): W230SS - GTX860M - 3G - QHD+ (3200*1800)

Recommended Posts

Discuss! :star:

Same body as W230ST!

3200x1800 is surely nice for 4k video, Photoshop work and scales nicely to 1600x900 for gaming...I may want a new motherboard and screen. :)

This declared ultra high resolution 13.3" LCD that has been going around in laptops such as the ATIV Book 9 Plus and Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro is not a true 3200x1800 display, because it is using what's called the RGBW-Pentile arrangement. This means each declared "pixel" is not allocated the expected trio of red, green, and blue independently variable stripes, but is instead allocated either red and green, or blue and white, alternating in a lattice formation. The RGB-based image intended to be displayed is then lossily converted to work on this non-standard arrangement. Furthermore, the primary purpose of the white subpixel is a cheap trick to save power and artificially increase brightness, and has been the root of numerous complaints of discoloration -- primarily in the yellow hues.
