>>47522492 It's not placebo, you can actually see the difference. The real question is, "are the extra pixels really worth my money"? If you feel the need to see the pores on an actor's face, the answer is yes.
This blog post was written over a year ago but it still highlights the laziness/greediness of display manufacturers. Pic VERY related.
>At the office, we had been using antiquated pairs of 19-inch monitors. An upgrade was needed. What to choose? Today, you can still buy a 30-inch 2560x1600 display for over $1,000. Or you can get a 39-inch 3840x2160 display for $500. This choice is not even fair.
>Four editors side-by-side each with over a hundred lines of code, and enough room to spare for a project navigator, console, and debugger. Enough room to visualize the back-end service code, the HTML template, the style-sheet, the client-side script, and the finished result in a web browser—all at once without one press of Alt-tab.
He says people pretty much all loved it even though the TV's HDMI 1.4 inputs only allowed 4K @ 30Hz. Also, tiling window managers helped a lot.
>>47524598 I got a 2560x1600 monitor for 380 dollars last year.
Anyway, I find that even a 30 inch monitor is a bit too large. I have to move my head while looking at things on the far edges of the screen to get a good view of them. 39 just seems like diminishing returns, especially in 16:9.
>>47520301 I love this desktop/laptops will disappear meme. >what are gamers >what are designers >what are programmers >what is video edition >what is audio edition All require powerful desktops, a lot of the times multiple screens and gamers are a big part of the market.
>>47524905 It's not that hard to believe that those people will be able to do those things on more portable devices. >what are gamers Given the specs, you can run CS:GO on a surface pro at acceptable framerates and Full HD. We'll probably not see something like GTA V on a handheld ever, but it's not that surprising that in 5 years almost all serious gaming (I'm even exluding things like fruit ninja) will be done on tablets and smartphones. >what are designers Like gaming, even if it's not doable on handhelds now, I see it as something done professionally on a tablet in a few years. >what are programmers Kek yes, writing *characters on files* is a job for 700W desktops. Honestly, if you use an IDE that notifies you of syntax errors, you won't even have to compile more than a few times a day, which was the only advantage of using a desktop. >what is video edition Probably the one where it will be almost impossible to do from a handheld. >what is audio edition Something that can be done from a fucking smartphone. Today.
>>47524905 In reality, the plebs don't actually need a desktop for their computing work. If all they need is a Facebook/word processing/Youtube machine, any modern tablet will suit them perfectly fine. People who do more specialized work than that will continue to buy desktops at a slow rate.
