At 2880 by 1800 the MacBook Pro handily beats all others today.
If you want to look at others, there are no others today with this high a resolution.
I'm looking for a light, affordable laptop with the highest screen resolution I can get. At the moment I'm using an old Acer Aspire 1710. It cannot stream videos such as the iPlayer or play video files over 480p without freezing and going out of sync. I want to find a laptop that can handle HD video.
I'm looking at Lenovo Ideapad Z580 and HP Pavillion. There are just so many to choose from and so many factors that I don't understand! Any guidance would be greatly appreciated...
