If youâ€™ve tried to buy a nice Windows laptop in the past few years, thereâ€™s a good chance youâ€™ve agonized over display resolutions.
Buy a laptop with a 4K display, and youâ€™ll get a picture so sharp that individual pixels become indiscernible, but both battery life and performance will suffer as a result. Get a 1080p laptop instead, and youâ€™ll get more battery life at the expense of that glorious picture.
There is, of course, a middle ground in the form of 1440p (2560x1440) displays, also known as QHD. You just wouldnâ€™t know it from todayâ€™s selection of laptops. Even though 1440p hits the sweet spot between a crisp picture and long battery life, most laptops instead make you choose between extremes.
