Just chiming in here with a prospective buyers opinion.
I have a 4K screen in a 15" style laptop. It is not worth it.
Maybe when I was 16 years old and my eyesight was perfect, I might have appreciated it when I leaned in.
However the reason I want to upgrade? I want a 4K monitor. 4K on a 15" screen makes no sense, 4K on a 30" screen is awesome. My current laptop can’t drive an external 4K screen at 60hz. For some reason it’s got HDMI 1.4 on it. It’s stupid.
@darko: You either have eyesight gifted from the gods, you are not working on a 15" screen, or you are constantly hunching in (which is not good for you).
And all this assumes that you are effectively rendering to 4K with your intel integrated graphics. Which means you’re not running gnome, that’s for sure. Openbox, lxde, and xfce for the most part, is OK at 4K with the integrated graphics. PureOS runs Gnome doesn’t it? That will be very bad at 4K in my experience.
On other subjects:
My big blocker is the lack of 32GB of ram to be honest. I run a bunch of virtual machines as part of my job prototyping subsystems for my company. I bump into my current 16GB of headroom every so often and it’s annoying.
I also would like an ethernet port but that’s a mild want.
I think the placement of the kill switches makes sense, having them somewhere you can see them is a good idea. Most manufacturers got rid of kill switches because users became confused as to why their wifi wasn’t working, because they forgot they had hit the switch. It’s a pain point. It needs to be addressed.
