    3200x1800 in a 13" screen?! That's some serious DPI. Wouldn't be able to play any games at native res though!

    Finally, they're offering decent display panels in the higher end laptops! WP Dell.

    Re: News - Dell announces Alienware 13 gaming laptop

    As bad as it sounds, I genuinely like that the monitor has an option for 1366x768. Although I get that there are people who want higher resolution on small screens, when it comes to Windows, due to its poor DPI scaling, I'm much more a fan of lower resolutions on small screens. Furthermore, that resolution much better matches the mobile graphics card it's to be powered by.

    In an ideal world, I think that somewhere in between 136x768 and 1920x1080 would be the best combination of resolution and functionality, but nonetheless I do like their options there. I might have a look at those when they're released. I imagine they'll be overpriced though, alas. Anything over £700 would be far too much for the lowest-end specs.

    It looks like they've dropped the glowing track pad... This is good!
